Candles - support service trip and women's cooperative
In the coming weeks, Grace Youth will be selling candles from Thistle Farms to support our service trip to South Dakota in June 2016 and also support the important work of Thistle Farms women's cooperative. Each candle is $20.00. It is a wonderful gift for family and friends during the holidays. We will be selling candles following church on Nov. 15, 22, and 29.
Advent Wreath Making Workshop - Nov. 29th following worship
Grace Youth are hosting an advent wreath making workshop after church on Sunday, November 29th. We will have food to share, greens and candles and wreaths, and plenty of expert wreath makers to show us the way! Please bring your whole family and make an advent wreath for your home and maybe one for a neighbor or friend or shut-in. We will also have advent booklets and readings for the weeks of Advent. Candles will also be on sale to support the youth service trip. We are asking for a $30. donation for each wreath, but we invite everyone to come an make a wreath for free if you would like.
Youth Retreat - Sat. Dec. 5 - Sun. Dec. 6th
Grace Youth will head to Douthat State park for an Advent retreat on Dec. 5-6. The theme of our retreat is Spiritual Journeys. We will look at the spiritual journey of the Lakota people and we will draw maps of our own spiritual journey. We will hike and play outside, cook together, build a fire, and talk about our pilgrimage to South Dakota. We will depart at 12:00 noon from the Village School and we will return around noon on Sunday.
