Events on Dec 2 at Noon
Three congregation events will occur on Sunday, Dec 2.
Advent Brunch for Adults from Noon-2:00
Advent Brunch returns to Rhoads Ave this year with Pastor Wayne and Kate Zschech hosting the event at the parsonage next door to the church. Adult beverages will be available as well as a ham, and guests are invited to bring a brunch item to share with other participants. This is a great way for members and guests to mingle and get to know one another in a festive setting and you won’t even need to move your car! You can even use the church ovens if needed to keep your entrée warm during the 10:30 worship. Parents with young children will not even need to worry about childcare as the Oasis Youth Group is holding a childcare event at the church during the same time.
“Deck the Halls” for Christmas from Noon- 2:00
The congregation will work with confirmation youth and parents to prepare our church for Christmas by putting up the two trees in the sanctuary and one in the narthex with lights and Chrismon ornaments. This is a great time for families to learn about the meaning behind the unique Chrismon ornaments that adorn our sanctuary trees each year.
Lunch will be coordinated by Director of Youth and Family Ministry, Jaime Frazier, and the three large artificial pine trees will be put up, strung with lights, and decorated with the handmade Crismons immediately following the meal. Help get our church ready for the Christmas Pageant and Lessons and Carols events in the coming two weeks. Contact the church office if you plan to attend to insure enough pizzas are ordered. Homemade Christmas cookies are always a great treat to share if you would like to bring some.
Christmas “Drop ‘N Shop” Childcare from Noon-3:00
Haven’t finished your Christmas shopping yet? Want to spend three uninterrupted hours focusing on your To Do List? Or maybe you just want to enjoy a quiet lunch and a movie. Consider leaving your children with the Oasis Senior High Youth Group for three hours after worship. Lunch will be provided and the children will engage in various crafts and games as well as see a variety of classic Christmas children’s movies (Pastor Wayne has a big collection). Don’t be afraid to let your friends and family know about it too!
