Christmas in August

Wed., Aug., 16 | 5:45 – 7:15 p.m. | Room 150

Preschool 4 – Grade 6

Christmas in August? Of course! You’ll bake cookies, decorate ornaments, sing favorite carols, and collect gifts for the chosen missionary in Canada, Holly Procita. Come dressed in your favorite Christmas clothes or pajamas, and bring a small gift from this list:

  • Children’s scissors 
  • Crayons 
  • Washable markers 
  • Stickers 
  • Christian story books for children 
  • Christian music CDs for children 
  • Christian coloring/activity books

Holly Procita is a North American missionary in Calgary working with Southwinds Church, a church in the center of a community full of young families. There are 10,000 people living in this community, but less than five percent attend church. Through Christmas in August, you get to partner with Holly to reach families with the love of Jesus.
