Before Santa loads up his sleigh and starts his trek around the globe, he’ll stop by First United to have pancakes with some of his favorite northeast Nebraska children. “Pancakes with Santa” will be held from 10:30 a.m. to Noon on Saturday, Dec. 14. The event will include pancakes, photos with Santa, crafts and a reading of the Christmas story. “Pancakes with Santa” is a free event open to the public.
Preparing for Advent and Christmas begins with decorating the church by hanging the greenery on Sunday, Nov. 24 at noon. We will decorate our church, sanctuary, welcome center and put up the outdoor Nativity scene. Many hands make the load light, and the fellowship is always great! Please come join in to make our church beautiful! Lunch will be provided.
Kids grades 4-6th are invited to join the Gospel Project Christmas Edition from 6:30-8pm every Wednesday from Nov. 20-Dec. 18. The children will learn about how God sent His Son, Jesus, to earth to be born as a baby in humble surroundings and that Christmas is the time to celebrate God’s greatest gift of Jesus Christ. Our time will include reading the Bible, doing Bible activities, watching videos, praying and journaling. Supper is provided.
