This Christmas as you sit at home with your loved ones please remember the real reason why we celebrate this big holiday. Jesus our Lord and Savior. Let this be a great reminder.
Around this holiday we get really busy. With all sorts of things going on it’s hard to take a minute and soak in the real reason for Christmas. We, in fact, like to spread the word of God through a small play for our Kingdom Kids to express what has been taught to them. How Jesus was born. They love watching our very own teens, volunteers, and young ones put on costumes that reflect the time of His coming. With no time to lose we put together a quick skit and nailed it! We had everything from sheep to the Star of Bethlehem and the three wise men. Check it out!
|Our cast. Baby Jesus included.|
|Ann and Joel played Joseph and Mary. |
|Brielle played Baby Jesus very well. |
|Sheep, camel, cow, sheep, & donkey in that order and well behaved.|
|Two shepherds and their sheep.|
|Three other beautiful angels showed up too.|
|What a beautiful sight. |
|Star of Bethlehem shining bright.|
|Camel took a rest and the wise men walked on their own.|
What a joy!
We also squeezed in an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party for all the staff. We took the time to make this day special for them. Delicious food, hot cocoa, desserts galore and a special time dedicated to thanking Carle Troyer for finishing her internship. We had games for the young ones and adults as well along with a white elephant gift exchange that made this night lively and entertaining.
|Presented Carle with a frame that included beautiful words for her departure. |
|Caleb’s white elephant gift did not get stolen. LOL|
|Starbucks gift card for the win! Too bad you didn’t get to keep it Joel. |
|Gag gift = batteries, gift not included. Who was the wise one behind this!? LOL |
|Trick was to roll a 6 for your turn on unrolling the plastic wrap ball full of goodies.|
|Adults had their own too. |
|Game: Draw a Christmas picture for some points…on your head.|
|Not as easy as we thought.|
|Ugly Christmas Sweater winners! Joel didn’t feel the need to remove the tag on the sweater. |
|UnitePhx friends Stephen and Nicole.|
|Surprised Caleb and Stephanie with a gift card mini Christmas Tree! Thanking them for their hard work and dedication they have placed into Aim Right.|
|Thank You Mast family for opening up your home and hosting our Christmas party! |
|We want to send a BIG THANK YOU to Carle Troyer for stepping out of her box and obeying God’s wishes to come out here and serve our kids and our community. Her time here has past by ever so fast. Thank you for staying the extra time and for impacting our young girls with your servant heart. You will be missed!!!|
Merry Christmas Everyone!!!
