PS: This Friday we will take time to work on filling little bags with goodies for our friends at CRC. Although we can't do our traditional "Reverse Trick or Treat" and visit with the residents, we will still deliver it there so it can be distributed. We want to keep our connection. We will be doing this Friday.

Lots of games, crafts, and fun planned!

We take all safety measures.  We check temperatures and 
masks are necessary for the entire time. 
For those coming don't forget to fill out the safety form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdUvT8A2NdcT7qYojS-bqlyFA1BLxjA2dW0KTemdEdPnACAng/viewform
And bring your water.

Priceless Gift Store
Every year the BLAST children help the Priceless Gift Toy Store in Jackson re-stocking their shelves by bringing GENTLY used toys to church that we take over to them. We want to continue to support them and for that, I ask if you have any gently used toys that your children may have outgrown or not be using that you may be willing to donate, so we can help children have a joyful Christmas.
Over 6,000 children in Jackson received a gift from their parents last Christmas because of the generosity and INITIATIVE of others. They are also always pleased to collect AA batteries.
Deadline for bringing toys is December 1st! A designated table is set in Grams Hall just for donations. You can drop it off at your earliest convenience.
Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays: 8 am - 2 pm
Wednesdays and Thursdays: 8 am - 8 pm
Sundays: 8 am - 11:30 am
 
- Pageant
The time of the year is already here as we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
This is an unusual year BUT we won't let this important occasion pass. We intend to do a virtual pageant to be shown in our online Service. Since we can't be together to rehearse and perform, we intend on recording it separately and in parts and digitally put it together.
If the children in your household are interested in participating, please send me an email back ASAP so we can start planning accordingly. The script used will be separated in basically 6 scenes so we can keep everyone safe as well as following guidelines. The intention is also to record scenes around our town.
I hope you will participate!!! 
Thanks for those who already reached out, I will be contacting you in the coming week.
For those who haven't yet and are interested,  please send me a message ASAP.
Love and Peace,
Susan
