Merry Christmas!!

A word, or two, to the Youngest Disciples. 

"Little Children you are from God. 
Beloved let us love one another for love is from God."

'twas the Sunday before Christmas...

 and all through the church, little flames were burning brightly in wreaths, minds and hearts...

Boys made noises


 Jackson helped the light to shine brightly.

 Pastor Ken told of nicknames for Jesus, such as "Prince of Peace"  "Light of the World".
