Jan Saylor organized an Advent Workshop on Nov. 26 from 3:30pm to 5pm. This was our first such workshop for the entire congregation.
It was a wonderful intergenerational event with 16 people participating. It was a good kickoff for Advent, creating items to be taken home.
Jan had organized the Parish House into 4 stations:
1. Creating a block based nativity scene. The characters were drawn on small blocks of wood.
2. Bird feeder made with pine cones covered with peanut butter and bird seed.
3. Advent wreath intended for tables with candles and greenery.
4. Decorated Christmas trees that started with sugar cones and were covdred with different frostings, white and green, decorated with assorted sprinkles.
People flowed between the stations as they liked. The timing was ideal as they easily worked through four stations.
Here was a sampling of what was created in the above order:
