Advent Services and Soup Dinners

The Christmas season is upon us and to help prepare our hearts for celebrating our Savior’s birth, Garden Homes Lutheran Church will be having mid-week Advent services. The first Advent service is tonight, Wednesday, December 6th, starting at 6:00pm. There are also Advent services on Wednesday, December 13th, and Wednesday, December 20th. Before each Advent service there is always a soup supper served in the cafeteria from 5:00pm to 6:00pm. Tonight, December 6th, the GHLS student council will be serving soup supper. We would love to see you there.

Join Us Tomorrow!

Tomorrow, Thursday, December 7th, we will be hosting a Christmas Craft Night in the gym for all parents and students. The event will run from 3:30pm – 5:00pm. There are many crafts ready for parents to create with their children. All projects created can be taken home and displayed this holiday season. There will also be some treats available at the event. All students attending must be accompanied by a parent. We hope to see many of you there.
