We will be going Christmas Caroling at the Blake this Sunday, December 16th.  We will carol from 3:30 until 4 PM.  Parents, I ask that you stay and help us sing.  

Several of our church members reside at the Blake, and I know they would love to hear us sing!  I have spoken to Brad Robinson, chancel choir director.  He will be in attendance and has also asked the chancel choir members to join us.  We would love to get all the children, youth, choir members, and parishioners involved!  If you have any questions, please let me know.  Since we will be caroling Sunday afternoon, there will be no evening Kaleidoscope activities at church.
