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!

We loved retelling the story of Jesus' birth!

Putting together a puzzle of the Christmas Nativity

We had fun playing in the gingerbread table this week!

We worked in small groups to sort pictures onto our color train.  Then we colored our paper to match the pictures on the color train.  The best part was using smelly markers!

The three day class made gingerbread houses for art.

Then the 3 day class made gingerbread houses with food and candy!

Their masterpieces!

The 2 day class baked some gingerbread cookies only to find out they went missing!!

The oven was empty except for a clue...

The first clue took us to the office.

Oh no! Where did the cookies go?

The clues finally led us back to our classroom where we found the missing cookies!

We enjoyed decorating our cookies...

and EATING those cookies!

On Monday we had a Christmas Party in the 3 day class!  We did a craft and played games!

Snow ball race on scooters!

We played "pass the present."

The 2 day class had their Christmas party on Tuesday.  We had a fun day!

Trying to throw the snow ball into the circle.  It was harder than it looks!

We gave our friends a gift and used our manners to thank our friend for our gift.

Christmas tree decorating!

The 5 day class had their Christmas party on Tuesday!

We remembered the Christmas story by using these stickers.

We played Christmas BINGO!

We had fun opening gifts from our friends!
