Connect at Church
For the month of December we are focusing on the Good News of Christmas. As we celebrate the greatest gift the world has ever seen, we are reminded of how important it is to give to others. That’s why we’re collecting toys for kids and families in need. All you have to do is buy a new toy that costs around $20, and drop it off at any of the boxes around the church. Make it a family outing and go to the store together! Talk to your little ones about what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. Ask your kids how they feel when they get a new toy for Christmas; I’m sure they’ll have no shortage of words to describe it. Tell them that what you’re doing is bringing that same joy to others who might not be able to get a present. Remind them that the Good News of Christmas is that God gave a gift to us when He gave us Jesus, and that by giving to others we can be part of God’s big plan.
