Morning.Church Crafts & Carols at Top Rung
Sunday, Dec 10 @ 10:30am
Everyone is welcome for Morning.Church on Sunday, December 10 at 10:30am in the Tap Room of Top Rung Brewing, 8343 Hogum Bay Rd. NE, Lacey (map). This is the season to slow down, simplify, and remember what's deep and true about Christmas. We'll do that with all-ages singing and prayer, and by creating simple Christmas ornaments to keep and share with people in local care facilities (delivered during Christmas caroling on Dec. 17, see below).
No previous church experience necessary.
Fun and donuts included.
For more information, see the Facebook event, send an e-mail, or call/text 360-545-3454.
*Morning.Church is a worship gathering of Evergreen UMC, meeting twice a month. Through Morning.Church, folks in the Evergreen community seek to love and follow Jesus by doing the kinds of things Jesus did - welcome, play, learn, listen and share.
