We will have two BLAST meetings in December to work on our Children’s Christmas play which will be presented on Sunday, December 15 at 5:00 pm. We will also play games, sing and dance, play outside and make a cool craft to help us remember what makes Christmas great.
BLAST! is open to children ages 3 (potty trained) through 5th grade. We meet on the 2nd Saturday each month (Sept through June) for crafts, songs, games, stories and fun all designed to help children learn about our Savior and loving those around us. BLAST! is open to the community, so invite any children you know who would like to participate.
Its always helpful when you let Renee Purvis know you are planning to come, so we can be prepared: firstname.lastname@example.org or 512-565-3836.

Children’s Christmas Program
“The Grumpy Donkey” | Sunday, December 15 | 5:00 pm
The children of Leander UMC would like to invite the congregation to their performance of “The Grumpy Donkey”. Follow the Grumpy Donkey as he travels to Bethlehem, carrying a “FAT” lady and complaining every step of the way. Meet the animals who try to change his attitude along the way, and the special baby who succeeds when everyone else fails. There will be singing, costumes and lots of applause! Come be a part of this fun show.
Children who wish to perform in the show should attend BLAST on December 7 and 14 when we will be learning our parts and practicing.
Family Fun Night – Gingerbread House Building
Saturday, December 14th | 6 pm | Dorroh Fellowship Hall
We will be serving a soup and sandwich supper. If you plan to attend, we would appreciate you signing up to bring a specified candy. We will also be accepting donations to offset the cost of other supplies. This is a great activity for families to do together; and the best part for Mom and Dad? The mess isn’t at your house, only the wonderful creation you made with your family!
