The Shep­herd School of Nazareth Lutheran Church put on an ex­cel­lent retelling of the Christ­mas Story on De­cem­ber 18. Di­rec­tors Carol and Philip Larsen, along with some spe­cial peo­ple, helped the kids to re­ally shine and fig­ure out what the sea­son is all about. The Christ­mas Eve Can­dle­light Wor­ship will be­gin at 4 pm at Nazareth on De­cem­ber 24. All are wel­come! Come and cel­e­brate the birth of the Christ Child! There will not be wor­ship on De­cem­ber 25. En­joy the sea­son with your loved ones!

The Mem­ory Tree is up at the cor­ner of the church, with the names of those we have loved and lost. If you hap­pen to drive or walk past, take a look at the lovely work that Carol Cal­laghan and Yvonne Way do to help us honor those we miss at Christ­mas time.

The Lionettes held their group Christ­mas Party at the Coun­try Farm­house, with spe­cial guests of three life­time mem­bers: Donna Firkus, Marie El­lis, and Joan Holm. The Lionettes also hosted their an­nual Se­nior’s Christ­mas party last week.
