What’s all the Hype, what have you been hearing? The Sparkle Box, what is that? Christmas has become commercialized, we get that right, The Sparkle Box is our way of remembering the true reason for the season. It’s a way to give back the way Jesus would want us to, and guess what, it’s all between you and him. No names, no bulletin postings. On December 1st, The Sparkle Box will appear and the book The Sparkle Box will be read during children’s time. It is the story of Sam and how with the help of his parents, he discovers the true meaning of Christmas, because guess what, it’s not about us. The theme at St. Peter’s this year is A Different Kind of Christmas, which highlights giving in a new way. Instead of so much giving to each other, let’s give gifts like Jesus. Join us during December Sunday Worship Services to learn more about the contents of The Sparkle Box and how it can change Christmas.
Just in case you did not know, St. Peter’s has a library. It is in the parlor. There are some very interesting and informative books there waiting to be read. The books are now alphabetized by title. Just skim through the list in the two folders located on the table between the book cases and find a book of interest to you. One folder lists “Reading Material” and one lists “Study Material”. Enjoy reading your book of choice and please place it in its alphabetized spot on the shelf when returning. Sunday School or Bible Study teachers, please check out the available study material in the library before purchasing new material. There are many interesting topics of choice. So relax, read and enjoy! This message courtesy of St. Peter’s Christian Education Committee.
We envision our church welcoming all people, encouraging a journey of faith and serving the world in the name of Christ.
