We went to see the crib in church. We talked about what we could see. We noticed that all the people and animals were looking at Jesus.
The Nursery children have made angels for their Christmas trees. They remind us of the angels who brought the Good News about Jesus to Mary and the shepherds.
We went into the hall for an Advent prayer service. We lit two candles on the Advent wreath and prayed for peace. We listened to the bible story about the birth of Jesus. We sang ‘Stay Awake, Be Ready’ to remind us to prepare for the coming of Jesus. Do you know what the third candle represents?
We had a Prayer Service to reflect on the wonderful world we live in. We thanked God for the things he made - the stars, dolphins, horses, dogs, flowers, families and friends.
Deacon Tim came to visit us today. We said prayers together. We listened to a reading from the bible and learned that Jesus loved the little children the most.
Then Deacon Tim blessed us with holy water. He blessed the prayer table too.
