As we approach Thanksgiving, I give thanks for the precious children and young people that bring so much wisdom and joy to our church family. One of the special gifts that they give us each year is the pageant on Christmas Eve.
As we plan for this special service, it would be helpful to know what children and young people are planning on participating in our pageant and what parts they would like to play. It is not always possible to grant all desires for a specific part.. but there are parts for everyone!
All children are welcome. It is not necessary to be a member of our church (or any church) So if you know of a child or young person (or family) that would like take part in our program please pass on the information.
I understand that the holiday season is a busy time for everyone. I also realize that children, young people and their families have many planned activities during this season. I am hoping that participating in the Christmas Pageant will be one of the priorities of the season.
FIRST PRACTICE IS SUNDAY NOVEMBER 26 AFTER CHURCH 11:30 to 12:15
We will be singing all the different songs in the pageant and at this time we will find out what parts the children are interested playing and if they want to sing any solos/duets etc.
Any children or young people that want to be in the pageant but can not attend this practice please email Marilyn Scanlon at firstname.lastname@example.org by November 26th
