HALL – Children from Hall Church are getting into the spirit of Christmas.
The church’s Monday School classes, consisting of kids from Drummond, Hall and Philipsburg, worked on making cards and a thank you gift for service men and women in the United States Military recently.
Pastor Deborah Schmidt described the Monday School classes as opportunity for area children learn Bible lessons, make creative crafts and perform service projects that all reflect the Gospel.
“We do a lot of music, too, and the children are great singers!” said Schmidt. “In addition to the service project that supports our troops overseas with cards and a thank-you gift, the children will sing at the nursing home in Philipsburg on (December) 20th. In worship on the 12th in Hall, the children will sing Christmas songs.”
The Monday school program had been on hiatus during the pandemic, but is operational again with volunteers wearing masks and taking other precautions.
Leaders for the class are Janet Koon, Jenna Buxbaum, Dianne Hocking, Laurie Cleveland, Jay Martin, and Schmidt.
Schmidt noted that all children are welcome to attend regardless of church membership or attendance. The Granite County Parish includes the United Methodist Churches in Drummond and Hall and the Presbyterian Church in Philipsburg.
