ENGAGE


                      Another way to connect with God in this season is through carols.
                      Children’s Sunday school is learning a carol each week of Advent.
                      You may want to play or sing the carol during dinner, at bedtime, or
                      during your Advent Devotions. This week’s carol is “God Rest Ye Merry
                      Gentlemen.”  In our lesson today, we are focusing on “tidings” of
                      good news: Jesus has come to save the world and he is always with us
                      through his spirit.
