PrintAdvent Workshop

Sunday, December 6 | 4:00-6:00pm | Fellowship Hall

Parkway UCC Christmas Elves are bringing our annual Advent Workshop back this year. Come join us to make crafts for the holiday season. Mingle around the different booths for all types of activities, including making special holiday ornaments, a nativity set, bird feeders, yummy cookies to decorate, and other crafts. God’s Eyes will be special craft available. Our traditional soup dinner will be held as the craft booths close. We love to see families working together. A short Vesper service provided by our confirmation class will be held at the close of the evening.

Carol Cobb and Barb Kuhlmann, Head Elves this year, are recruiting dedicated Christmas Elves to run booths. Already signed up are Ingrid Scharf and Jill Schatz. We are still recruiting more helpers: Phone lines and email are now open.

Membership Care, along with Linda Tossing, will be providing Kitchen Elves and are recruiting special super cooks to make a pot of their favorite soup to share, to bring bread or crackers, or a dessert.

What a great way to kick off the holiday season in a special way. Please join us for this yearly Parkway event. Click below to view your sign-up options.
