It’s December and that means Christmas parties! The Christmas parties are always a wild and fun adventure at CSM. From goofy sweaters to eggnog chugs, the nights are full of laughter and joy! This year we are continuing that tradition. We will have the High School Christmas Party on December 14th from 6-9pm. We will have the Middle School Christmas Party on December 17th from 6-9pm.
We will have drinks and pizza provided for the students. We ask that students bring a couple of things:
- A White Elephant Gift (something silly under $5 – the weirder the better)
- Wearing an Ugly Christmas Sweater (Optional: there will be a prize for the ugliest)
- Last Name A-M: A Dessert
- Last Name N-Z: An Appetizer
During the month of December we will have a series on Christmas, “Socks and Underwear”. We all know not all Christmas gifts are created equally. Some gifts are lame while others are highly anticipated and fill us with pure excitement…like these kids. So what makes a gift lame? We find gifts lame because they are things we need…kind of like socks and underwear.
This is where many of us find ourselves this Christmas season. We highly anticipate the opening of gifts wondering what we will receive. The sad truth is that many of us have opened the gift of Christ and responded with a dull thud; much like when we receive socks and underwear…like these kids. This series we are going to look at how we can be filled with great anticipation and expectation at the coming of our Savior’s birth; our greatest need.
