CHRISTMAS CARNIVAL
24 December, 2-5pm
For this year’s Christmas Outreach Program, we will be hosting our very first Christmas Carnival.
We are doing it with the “Station Approach”. There are at least 5 stations and each station will host its own activity for us to participate. For example, there is a 3D Card Making Station; see samples at foyer. Also, there is a Christmas Ornament Making Station.

Christmas is the perfect time to invite friends to a place where they can participate in a non-threatening event and are introduced to Jesus, Savior of the world.

Make it your goal to invite at least 1 friend to our coming Christmas Carnival.

HELP NEEDED!
Stationery for the Carnival
Help us with the types of stationery needed for the Christmas Carnival. They are just on loan; we will return you the week after the Carnival. Please see the list of stationery items at the notice board. Samples of the items are in the basket. Thank you!

The birth of Jesus, our Savior changed everything. It introduced grace, changed our future and altered our eternity. God reached down into the world and sent His Son to save and lead us back home.
This Christmas we worship our Savior. We worship Our King. We worship our Messiah. We worship Jesus!

“The community of faith, hope and love.”
Faith, hope, and love are often referred to as three theological virtues. The whole Christian life, in terms of our living in response to God and his new work in us, springs from faith, hope, and love. Everything we do as Christians relates to these three virtues.
These virtues are graces given to us from a gracious God.  Are we a community of faith, hope and love?
