It finally happened. The church we attend decided to change the day and time of the Children's Christmas program. This year it was scheduled for our normal Sunday service time, 9:00 am. It had previously been on Christmas Eve in the evening. I was really disappointed that it was changed. I want Advent services in Advent and Christmas services on Christmas or Christmas Eve. After getting over my annoyance, I took the children to the practices and helped them learn their memory verses and hymns.
Sunday, we got up extra early to get everyone ready for church. We also had to arrive early for the children to warm-up vocally. When we arrived at the church, one of the Sunday School teachers explained that the service was cancelled. The church was without electricity! The Children's Christmas service is now scheduled for Christmas Eve. The youngest girls (ages 3 and 4) were very disappointed, but everyone else is happy with the turn of events.
