Baby Shower for Mary of Nazareth
Please join us at 9:30 a.m, on Sunday, December 24, for a service of worship based on the style of a baby shower. We will sing and pray and hear God’s word, as we always do in worship, and we will celebrate the end of Advent by playing baby shower games and anticipating the arrival of a baby boy for Mary & Joseph. This service will be very child-friendly (nursery will be provided, but Grace Bible School will not be in session), and a reception with coffee & cake will in Koinonia Hall will follow the service.
What do you bring to a baby shower like this? Good news, Mary of Nazareth is registered at Target! The registry items are SUGGESTED, to use as a guide if you need some ideas!
