Christmas is just around the corner and we know it’s an important time of year for kids and their families. This year, due to COVID, we have had to cancel our traditional ‘Breakfast with Jesus’ but we wanted to offer you a family-oriented event that will both be safe and fun for everyone!
On Sunday, November 29 the Kids Ministry will pass out a Christmas kit to each family. We are calling this kit “The Gift” and it will contain supplies (wood & nails) and instructions for parents and kids to build a manger. Parents can pick up the kit after each service on that Sunday — FREE!
The purpose of ‘The Gift‘ is to give parents a chance to teach kids about hard work, perseverance and (most importantly) why the manger is so important to our faith. Also included in this kit will be a list of possible Christmas activities, service opportunities and devotionals.
The first activity will be to build your manger. Then, during the days and weeks leading up to Christmas, you can display the manger inside (or outside) your home. The goal is to collect items to give away and donate them the week of (or immediately after) Christmas. Some of the suggested ideas are to collect canned goods to a food pantry, hats & gloves to a shelter or baby items to PDHC. Don’t worry — we will give you plenty of suggestions of places that could use some extra help!
