Advent Letter to Families

Advent Letter to Families

With the seasons of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany we are entering some of the most exciting days of the Christian year. Children can see the signs around them that announce that Christmas is approaching: decorations in stores, community parades, increased advertising on television, special school assemblies, and seasonal craft sales and other events. Their time with their church community helps remind them that we are preparing to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Advent is a time of watching and waiting.
