Children's Christmas Party 2016

On Friday evening, December 2nd, the Children’s Ministry hosted “Christmas Encounters: A Christmas Party for Children.”  The children enjoyed songs, games, cookies and a take-home craft as they learned about Christmas encounters from the first Christmas: Mary and Joseph each hearing from the angel, Gabriel…the shepherds’ hearing the angel announce Jesus’ birth, and the amazing angel choir singing Glory to God in the Highest… the wise men sharing about their encounter with the baby Jesus as they presented their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh…. And the real reason that Jesus came:  to save us from our sin.   She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.  ~Matthew 1:21
