Strathaven Sunday School - December News

As you can imagine, our focus for December is the Christmas story!

The children are fully involved in all things nativity! We have a range of arts and crafts activities themed around the nativity story that the children will be enjoying in between practice, practice, practice for our special show during the family service on Sunday 23 December!

During December, we are going to have nativity practices at 10am. You can drop your child off in the hall and come back for them before the church service at 11am. We understand that this might not be possible for everyone but if there are any weeks that this is possible it would be much appreciated. For the very little ones in the Sunday school, it is fine to just come along as normal at 11am. We are hoping to use this time to practice words and have an opportunity to use the church prior to the service.

Our Christmas parties are on Sunday 16 December. If you have not done so already, please let us know if your child is able to attend. This year, we have invited along the children from the Chapelton and Glassford buildings so it will be a great chance to get to know some new faces too.

The Christmas party for children in crèche to Primary 3 will be from 3-5pm in the large hall. Could we ask that any parents of children who attend the crèche would stay with their child; all other parents are invited back at 4.30pm – just in time for a special guest! We ask if each parent could bring along a little treat for the party food – Linsey will be organising this so if you could see her on Sunday that would be great.

The Christmas pizza and movie night is from 6.30 – 8.30pm in the large hall. Children are welcome to bring bean bags, cushions etc with them to get comfy for the film! This is for children from Primary 4 upwards, including the youth group.

The Sunday School team would like to take this opportunity to thank all parents and members of the congregation for their continued support and enthusiasm of the Sunday School and wish everyone a very, very Merry Christmas and peaceful New Year.

Many thanks,
Sunday School team
