Family fun at Advent Workshop

Everyone gets involved in decorating the gingerbread houses.

Everyone gets involved in decorating the gingerbread houses.

Join in the fun at the Round Hill Community Church’s annual Advent Workshop on Sunday, Nov. 30, at 4 p.m. Families and friends gather at the Round Hill Community House, at 397 Round Hill Road, to celebrate the beginning of the Advent season.

One of the highlights of the event, is decorating gingerbread houses. Roland Kistler, who runs many of the outreach programs at Round Hill Community Church, began this tradition several years ago.

Children take their finished masterpieces home and each night, families might write down one thing they are grateful for that day, and put the note in the gingerbread house.

In the New Year, they can take the notes out and remember the blessings of the season.

During the evening, participants can also create Advent Wreaths to take home, enjoy a light supper and sing Christmas carols. The event is free and everyone is welcome.

To insure that there are enough gingerbread houses, please call the church office at 203-869-1091 to make a reservation. For more information on the Advent Workshop or other events at the Round Hill Community Church, visit
