Messy Church was a big hit in July, after all, the theme was Christmas. Joy abounded in a full hall filled with kids and adults decorating Christmas cookies, assembling gingerbread nativities, making fleece blankets and creating beautiful ornaments with the help of several volunteers.
Each Messy Church has oodles of surprise activities to engage all ages. Find out more at St. Michael’s church website or contact Sue Van Oss at 239-472-2173 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. All are welcome.
