Since we have not yet been able to return to a COVID safe Sunday school at St. Mark’s, we provided Advent/Christmas bags for every family in the church. Inside the bags were Jesse Tree devotions and ornaments, an activity book for each child in the family, a craft for each child, two CDs of Christian music (with a code to download them onto an electronic device as well), and a bit of candy. We have been so pleased with the response of the congregation for these items. We also gave every family the 40 Days of Comfort devotions from the LCMS Disaster Response Office. We thank Thrivent Action Team grants for providing seed money for this project!
