THE CHRISTMAS PAGEANT IS COMING! SUNDAY, DECEMBER 22ND AT 4PM.
I still remember how amazing last year's Christmas pageant was.....so amazing, in fact, that we had the privilege of re-imagining it for THIS year. We're looking for kids and youth to fill all the roles-- would YOUR kids like to participate??
We need lots of help this year to make it work. Signing up to help is also on the registration form. We need helpers to sort costumes, to distribute costumes after each practice, to sit with the kids during practices/during the pageant itself, to send kids down the aisle at the right time....to put costumes away after the pageant is over (the week AFTER Christmas)....and we definitely will need help to the newest addition to this amazing Christmas tradition, which is a potluck dinner to follow the pageant.
This year's Christmas Pageant will be held on Sunday, December 22nd at 4pm. Rehearsals are scheduled for Saturday, December 21st at 10am and Sunday, December 22nd at 2:30pm (the worship service will be directly after the Sunday rehearsal).
In addition to this new date, we are hosting a potluck dinner after the pageant is finished-- it will begin at 5pm, and everyone can bring something to share. We also need "set-uppers" and "clean-uppers". Set up time is from 2pm to 4pm (during pageant practice) and clean up time is from 6pm to 7:30pm.
Here is the breakdown in food, by last name:
Last names A-E, bring a salad
Last names F through N, bring a main dish
Last names N through Z, bring a dessert
just bring something that you LOVE to make!!
Also....I've heard that we may have a Very Special Guest arriving mid-way through the dinner hours.....who could it possibly be?? One can only guess!
Finally, when you sign up for pageant roles, please take a look at suggested roles for different ages-- for example, a young person might want to be Gabriel, but this role needs to be filled by an older high school youth because that person carries the baby Jesus from the baby's family's lap over to the couple playing Mary and Joseph at the front of the church.....and 2nd or 3rd grader might want to do that, but is just not quite there yet.
