Merry Christmas!

And while they were there, the time came for her (Mary) to give birth.  And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.  Luke 2:6-7

God cares for us so much that He sent Jesus to save all people from their sins. Each Christmas we are reminded of the greatest gift we have received, our Lord Jesus Christ!

During this Advent and Christmas season, remember you are always welcome to join us at St. John’s for church.  We would love to have you!   Christmas Eve services are at 3pm and 5 pm and Christmas Day is at 10:00am.

Merry Christmas!

- Miss Becker and Mrs. Koosman

Letter: Kk

Three men in a fiery furnace 
Jonah and the whale

     Theme: Christmas

God has blessed these kids with beautiful singing voices!  
They did a terrific job sharing the Christmas story!  

 Christmas Bells, Christmas Bells
Ring them all the day 
God the Father sent his Son on that 1st Christmas Day 
Little Baby Jesus sleeping on the hay 
Came to Earth to save us, what a happy day! 
 Oh I love this Jesus, little baby boy.
I will tell about him. Spreading Christmas joy!
Knock, knock, knock went Joseph at the door.  "Do you have room for anyone more?"
The inn keeper said "You can use my stable for a bed." 
Shh, shh, shh what is that I hear? The cry of baby Jesus oh so dear!

 5 day full day class

 Jesus is the reason we celebrate Christmas!

The 2 day class helped make paper chains to decorate our Christmas trees!

The 2 day class went on a gingerbread hunt! 
At the end we found gingerbread cookies waiting for us in our classroom!  We had so much fun looking around the school for clues!
