You are also welcome to come to our Christmas dinner that begins at 6 pm before the service. Please let Jennifer Yessis (Reist) know if you are planning to attend the Christmas dinner at 6 pm for $5 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org before December 9th. We have capacity for 150 to attend our dinner and will need to cap the dinner at that number.
Senior High Christmas Party – Friday, December 13th at Knox, 6:30 – 9:30 p.m. All Sr. High’s are welcome! Come for a night of snacks, games and Christmas fun. Snacks and drinks will be provided. If you want to bring a favourite snack to share that would be great.
