Tree of Thanks
Start the Tree of Thanks as a fun Thanksgiving tradition and keep it displayed year-round as a reminder of the many things for which you are thankful.
You can build your own Tree of Thanks by following these steps:
- Find a branch that has fallen off a tree in your yard and put it in a quart size mason jar.
- Then secure it by filling the jar with smooth river stones and top the stones off with decorative moss.
- Tie a ribbon around the top of the jar.
- Then set out a bowl of metal rim marking tags and pens.
- As each family member thinks of things they are thankful for, write that word on one of the tags and then tie it on to the branch as if it were a leaf.
- It’s exciting to see the tree branch slowly fill up with “leaves” of thankfulness.
Do you have a child in PK-4 or Kindergarten who likes music and singing? We’d love to have them sing in Angel Choir!
Under the direction of Beth Roth and Heather Smithson, your children will explore the different things their voices can do in an age appropriate way. Your children will also dance, lead worship and have opportunities to lead prayer with each other.
Angel Choir meets on Sunday mornings from 10:25 am to 10:55 a.m. in Wesley Center room 207 and sings in the 9:30 service every month, the Family Christmas Service and on Palm Sunday.
This is a fun way to introduce singing and experience music!
