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 “Joy to the World.”  It
                      highlights the theme of the lesson: “Let every heart prepare him room!”
