I’m driving around Abbotsford being serenaded by songs from “The Grinch” these days. My two youngest children are in the upcoming Abbotsford Children’s Theater production – The Grinch Project – and are frantically trying to remember if they are trimming their trees with “Whoo-Floo-Fluff” or “Bizzle Binks” and “Goo-Whoo Gums”. Gotta love Dr. Suess’s version of English
Yes, Christmas is approaching, and we have some unique opportunities to celebrate the season of Christ’s birth here in Abbotsford. Let me share a few with you…
Supporting the Cyrus Centre.
At Oasis last week, we collected donations for over 50 gift bags for at-risk teenagers – clients of the Cyrus Centre. Each bag contained a pair of pajamas, socks, gift cards and toiletries. They were beautifully packaged in handmade drawstring Christmas bags! So fun
We will also be supporting the Cyrus Centre through our annual Christmas Home Tour!
Invite some friends and join us this Sunday December 2nd from 1:00 – 6:00 pm for a self-guided tour through 8 homes, ready for Christmas.
Tickets are $10 each, and all proceeds from this event benefit the Cyrus Centre. Click on the link above to purchase tickets on-line, and for more information.
Tickets are also available at Northview Church during the week (8:00 am to 4:30 pm), and at Glenda’s Christmas Cottage.
Northview’s Christmas Drama: The Missing Piece.
This one-act play is family-friendly and promises to be fun, entertaining, and thought-provoking for all. It is designed for you to bring your non-Christian friends and family so you can engage in some gospel conversations after viewing the play. Set in the 1920’s, you will be the guests at a music club and watch a Christmas story, mixed with a little mystery, unfold before your eyes! Come enjoy the drama, music, and story of what Christmas is all about!
