Love aLIVE December Children’s Craft

Kate Littler will lead this activity for children and caregivers during our online Love aLIVE Dinner Church event December 19th at 5 pm.

Celebrate the fourth week of advent by listening to the story Great Joy by Kate DiCamillo.

It is just before Christmas when an organ grinder and monkey appear on the street corner outside Frances’s apartment. Frances can see them from her window and, sometimes, when it’s quiet, she can hear their music. In fact, Frances can’t stop thinking about them, especially after she sees the man and his monkey sleeping outside on the cold street at midnight. When the day of the Christmas pageant arrives, and it’s Frances’s turn to speak, everyone waits silently. But all Frances can think about is the organ grinder’s sad eyes — until, just in time, she finds the perfect words to share.

Decorate your Christmas tree with the messages of Advent: Hope, Joy, Love and Peace.
