Planning for the 2018 Christmas Pageant is underway. Below are some pertinent dates to keep in mind –
December 16—Advent 3: We continue to prepare for the pageant. Children and youth of all ages are invited to join our Music Director and Adult choir at 9:30 a.m. to rehearse the music for the pageant. After the rehearsal, we will head downstairs to the Large Sunday School room for costume fitting and distribution of scripts. The pageant will use the same script as last year.
December 23—Advent 4: The only full rehearsal for the pageant is this Sunday. Youth are asked to arrive at 8:30 a.m., and children to arrive at 8:45 to get into costumes. The rehearsal with the Adult Choir will run from 9 a.m. until 9:50. After the rehearsal, all participants will go downstairs to hang up costumes and share their plans for Christmas. This is a time for fellowship and to refocus on Christ at the center of the season.
December 24—Christmas Eve: The pageant will begin at 4 p.m. Youth should arrive at 3:15 a.m. Children are to arrive between 3:15 and 3:30 to begin to get ready. Families can take seats up in the pews, leaving room for their children to join them. We will have music warm-up as soon as everyone is in costume. Children will then sit with parents until they are called to the front to take their places for the pageant.
December 30: There is no Sunday School. The nursery will be open.
