Notes from the SJB Youth Ministry
Advent Mini-Retreat
Sunday, December 7   6-8pm
This Sunday, we'll take some time to regroup (just like on a retreat) and talk about how to really get into the Advent season. Afterwards, we'll be writing Christmas cards that will be sent to our troops overseas. Bring some friends!

Ornament Painting

This was a favorite activity last year, so we'll once again paint ornaments and watch a classic Christmas movie. Please bring $5 to cover the cost of the materials.
