“We don’t know why the Grinch hated Christmas. We just know he did. In this new Advent study, Matt Rawle explores the faith themes in the Christmas classic, How the Grinch Stole Christmas! Including, how did the Grinch’s heart grow three sizes come Christmas morning? How did Christmas save the Grinch? Could it be that the very things we think we hate is the one thing that changes our lives?
This Advent and Christmas season, look at a familiar classic through the lens of faith and see how Christ speaks to us through our culture.”

Thanks to all who helped build the float, rode on it, and threw rubber "Jesus Loves You" bouncy balls into the crowd. Special thanks to Davis for providing pickup and trailer, plus Natalie & Jack for playing the parts of tiger and preacher.
Throwing bouncy balls was the kickoff for the October mission project of collecting playground balls for East Mills Elementary School.
