How Our Life Group Celebrated Christmas
December 17, 2015
By Carmen Abernathy and Karly Post
Throughout the Christmas season, Mt. Bethel groups, both large and small, gather for fun, fellowship, and food. Our student Life Groups designate a Sunday night in December as the official Christmas party night. All over East Cobb and beyond, these groups are celebrating!
One of the tenth grade girls’ groups chose to keep it traditional this year with building gingerbread houses and caroling in one of the neighborhoods. Some of them meticulously decorated their houses with symmetrical lines of candy and icing placed just in the right spaces. While others…not so much. They chose to smack on some icing and then eat the candy. Both were happy with their results!
After a taco dinner, they set out to spread some cheer to the neighbors with their beautiful voices lifted in harmony. “Deck the Halls” and “Jingle Bells” were favorites, but the showstopper was when they sang “Silent Night.” A quiet reverence fell over the singers and the listeners as they praised our Lord through song.
Silent Night, Holy Night. All is calm. All is bright. Our Life Group wishes everyone at Mt. Bethel a very Merry Christmas and the hope that you experience that sense of awe when you hear these time-honored, worshipful words. See more pictures from our party »
