The Garden City Community Church sponsored its annual Advent Breakfast on Sunday, December 1st. The Membership, Life and Development (MLD) Committee served up some pancakes, eggs and sausages after the Reverend Lynn Sullivan lead grace. Children's crafts included pine rope wreaths and coloring projects. A special Christmas Tree banner held names of children from a nearby church who need Christmas presents. Members selected their names and will buy them a gift .
 MLD Chair, Paul Birkenstock said, "We had a nice turn out of church families and friends for the breakfast. The kids really loved the craft and word puzzle placemats. A great start to the holiday season!"  
During the service, new members were introduced to the congregation. In Church School, rehearsal for the upcoming Christmas Pageant took place.
