“Preparing The Way For The Lord,
One Wreath At A Time!”

Making advent wreath

What: Create wreaths for Christmas to decorate the interior of our Church.

When: Wreath hanging is Friday Dec. 13, 6:00 pm and the wreaths will remain through Jan 6, 2020

How: Using a base with a diameter of 12-14 inches (ie: foam, straw, twigs, coconut leaves or bundled plant materials) decorate with flowers or foliage or creative artwork. Design represents your culture (Hawaiian, Japanese), or your family history (farming, ranching), or perhaps your journey/ walk with Christ. Let this be a fun craft you can do with your family or ministry!

For more information see Vickie Kai or leave your name and phone number at 959-7213.

We again look forward to seeing lots of lovely wreaths during this Christmas season!
