Jan. 8: Breakfast With The Wisemen - Echo Bay
Bar River enjoys having the young people attending church before Sunday School starts. Due to the young age of the children this year, the White Gift Service will be combined with the Sunday School Concert.
Echo Bay Sunday School has been their usual creative selves and have been busy with the making of Bethlehem Village in the church basement! Remember Breakfast With The Angels? Well this year they are going to give the Wisemen some
attention and have "Breakfast With The Wisemen" instead. Activities will begin at 9:30 on January 8.
Echo Bay U.C.W. held its annual Turkey Supper in September and Bar River had its Annual Fall Harvest Supper in early November. Both events were well attended and the food was terrific. Thank you to everyone who helped with these events.
If you haven't been to see Ruby Vaughan's collection of nativity sets yet, you really must make a point of doing so this year! She will have her display in the basement at Echo Bay December 1,2&3 from 12:30-8:30p.m.
