For many, many years now, on the first Saturday of Advent, the women of our church gather in the Fellowship Hall to celebrate Advent. This year was no exception; we all enjoy the tradition very much.
Beside women from our church, we had guests from Pine Grove Nursery School, Six Mile Run Reformed Church, Highland Park Reformed Church, Second Reformed Church, Suydam Street Reformed Church and friends of these ladies. All in all, we had around 70 people in attendance, and we still missed some of our regular women. We enjoyed all the breakfast items that everybody so generously donated, the songs, and, of course, the play, which was written by Pastor Susan. This year she even went so far as to change her voice so that she could portray Joseph with a really low voice. During the skit you could hear a pin drop; everybody, even the children, where all paying attention!
A great big “Thank You”; to everybody who helped with this event, whether it was by reading a passage, running the dishwasher, or coming in on Friday to set up!
We will meet on Jan 9th for our regular meeting, a Bible study is in preparation. We will also talk more about the Martha Award and what we need to do to get this event set for Mar 5th more organized. Please come to this meeting, so we can get another worthwhile event planned.
We have a couple of prayer shawls ready to be given away, so if you know about somebody who could use a little boost, or who is celebrating a special event in his or her life — talk to Erie.
