Help Make the Advent Workshop a Joyous Event
December 2, 11:30 am – 1:30 pm, Ostrander Hall
The Advent Workshop is a favorite annual all-ages church event of crafting, music, eating and fellowship that puts everybody in the Christ-mas spirit! It’s so awesome to spend the afternoon all together, making gifts to give loved ones, co-workers, charities in need, neighbors, or whoever is on your list. This year will include a gift-wrapping station, so you really can walk out with gifts 100% ready to give.
Vicki Farmer needs your help to get ready for this beloved annual holiday workshop. She is looking for volunteers to help with set-up, shifts at craft tables, clean-up…to make this the best workshop ever. Sign up at our Narthex table after worship or contact Advent Workshop Chair Vicki Farmer, firstname.lastname@example.org. All help is appreciated!

Children’s Retreat in February?
I sent out mail to every family registered in our program to gauge interest in The Children’s Retreat at Pilgrim Firs during Seattle public schools’ mid-winter break in February. Don’t forget to respond! Our tentative plan is for 2 nights away at Pilgrim Firs from Wed 2/20 – Friday 2/22, for some fun family fellowship during what may otherwise be an empty school-break week.
