Photos from Your Child's Christmas Party in Uganda

Thanks to you, COTN children across the globe have been able to have Christmas parties this year. Today, we are excited to share photos from Christmas celebrations at COTN–Uganda.
 
Celebrating with singing
 
The theme of this year’s celebration was "The Prince of Peace," based on Isaiah 9:6: “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6 ESV).
 
Celebrating with singing
 
Children were reminded that they can only find peace in Jesus Christ. And that peace comes from receiving and allowing Jesus Christ to abide in our hearts every day.

Children enjoyed a time of singing, dancing, serving each other, playing games, and listening to a Bible lesson. During this time, children also shared testimonies with each other about how God has been generous to them during the year.
