First United Methodist Church of Arroyo Grande

An Evening with Saint Nicholas

St. Nicholas Day Night
Monday, December 6, 2010
7:00pm in the Sanctuary

Join us this evening, won't you, to hear from the venerable ol' man himself, Saint Nicholas. Saint Nicholas, Bishop of Myra, will personally share his story, from his birth and childhood in Patara, through his days as a leader of the Church, to the legends and stories that have built up around him. And, he'll share some of his thoughts regarding today's American amalgam we call Santa Claus. For St. Nicholas, it's all about sharing God's love.

Bring your friends!

A freewill offering will be taken to support the church's Benevolence Fund.

Saint Nicholas will be portrayed by Jamie Foster. Details.

Childcare will be provided for Kindergarten through 3rd grade, and nursery care will be provided for those younger. Please RSVP for childcare or nursery care by Friday, December 3, 2010 at Noon. Call the church office: 481-2692.
