United Methodist Women’s Christmas Brunch –
“Who is Coming to Our House?”: December 7th
The United Methodist Women of Duluth First United Methodist Church will present their annual Christmas Brunch on Saturday, December 7th, from 10 a.m. to noon in the Fellowship Hall. This year’s program, “Who is Coming to Our House?”, shares how we, as Christians prepare our hearts and our homes for the most wonderful time of year and how, long ago, the animals of Christmas played a part in preparing for the birth of the baby Jesus.
The women and children, (ages 6 and up) of our church are invited, along with their guests, to come and share a delicious brunch, sing Christmas carols, and hear the heartwarming story of how the animals played a role in welcoming baby Jesus to the world. The cost for food is $5 per person at the door.
There will also be a love offering that will go to The Proskuneo School of the Arts located in The Nett Church, Nettwork Campus in Norcross. The school is working to better the quality of life of the many immigrants in the Norcross area by offering tutoring to low-income students and opportunities for the children to participate in music, art, drama, or dance, while incorporating biblical truths, investing in the spiritual lives of these students.
