    Spreading Love at Christmas

    HOPE, JOY, FUN, TENDERNESS, WARMTH, PEACE, AND THE GOODNESS OF GOD’S LOVE.

    These emotions were experienced by all on Sunday, December 20th for a group of 30+ people from 5 months to age 99. We listened to the story of the Birth of Jesus Christ as told in Luke 2, and sang Christmas Carols accompanied by violin, trumpet, French horn and flutes. We also gave handmade Christmas cards to the residents and staff of Maple View Manor, a skilled nursing facility down the street from WEFC at 856 Maple St., Rocky Hill.

    There is something captivating in a toddler’s beaming smile, as they enthusiastically ring a bell, and sing out their own version of “Silent Night.” Who wouldn’t smile as a young child dressed in their Christmas best proclaims, “Merry Christmas!” and hands you a homemade Christmas card?

    It has become a holiday tradition over the last seven years to spread Christmas cheer as members of our WEFC family visit and share the hope, joy, and love of Christ with the people who live and work at MapleView Manor.
