Dear SUUS Families,
“Let it snow, let snow, let it snow!” Wow, it was so beautiful to see the snow this morning! It certainly put me in a joyful mood, and got me very excited to join Jennifer & Sarah Swenson on Saturday, December 11 at 9am to make our toy delivery for Faith’s Annual Toy Drive, and then to sing Christmas Carols together this Sunday, December 12 from 3-4pm at SUUS! Yippeeee!
And, there is more! On Sunday morning, please join us for an Outdoor Multigenerational Worship Service at 10:30am! We will have a joyful celebration of music and dance so come ready to sing and move! The sun is reported to be bright, and we will have the fire pit and heat lamps to keep warm. There will also be activity boxes for families with special projects and crafts. You won’t want to miss this service!
See you then!
p.s. For those in the Christmas Pageant, please come to church on Sunday morning at 9:15am for rehearsal. Woohoo!
Faith Formation Happenings
Sunday, December 12 at 10:30am Multiplatform Worship “Dance for Joy!”
We can dance for joy in so many ways. One way is with our bodies. You might want to wiggle your fingers and toes. You might want to stretch like a cat or hop like a bunny, you might want to wrap a warm blanket around yourself. You might want to hug a friend or wiggle in your chair.
