Churches report Christmas projects
Oklahoma’s churches gave good gifts at Christmas time, in the name of the Greatest Gift. Below are gift updates provided to Contact.
The quilters also sewed together fabric squares decorated by the 27 children in the church’s midweek program, "Kid’s Connexion." Each child’s "creation quilt" was based on Genesis 1, the focus of their study during one quarter, said Pastor Eric Snyder.
At the mission station, military chaplain Brian Kirschenbaum spoke, and each family wrote the name of a serviceman or woman on a snowflake-shaped ornament, a keepsake for the family’s Christmas tree. In a nearby prayer room, families paused to pray for that person.
At another stop, each family created a small Advent wreath and received instructions to use it at home. A Christmas backdrop decorated the picture-taking station. Families could take group photos with their cameras, and a photographer also was available. At the gingerbread cookie station, each person could decorate a sweet treat.
