Advent Workshop: "Luther-Style" Cross-generational Event
Sunday, December 3, following the church potluck
It's not "just for kids!" Everyone is invited to help make decorations for the Fellowship Hall Christmas tree. Community and school events make Saturdays full days for so many that we've decided to change the Advent Workshop to a Sunday afternoon event. Not only will it hlep with busy Saturday family schedules, but it allows us to create a special "Bethlehem Family" family time. We have planned a little something for everyone: devotions, crafts, music, and activities. You won't want to miss it! We hope you'll join us.

Make checks out to Bethlehem, with “Christmas Project” in the memo.We spend more than $1,000 to fill the food baskets each year.Bethlehem members always have been very generous and have helped make Christmas happy for many families.
