Dec. 19 – Christmas Pageant!
We are so excited for this year’s Christmas pageant which will take place Sunday, Dec. 19 at 5 p.m. We are happy to continue this tradition, but sad to announce it will be our beloved directors’ last pageant. After many, many years, parishoners Jennifer Moran and Jennifer Doerfler will retire as directors. We hope you will join us to celebrate them and their devotion to Christ Church and our Children’s Ministry.
As for our cast, the fourth and fifth graders have their leading roles and are practicing each week until Dec. 12. Please have the lead cast report to the Parish Hall every Sunday, from 11 a.m. to noon. All others, age three through third grade who would like to participate can sign up outside their Sunday School room or notify Sloane Brooks via firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up. The last day to do this is Sunday, Dec. 5. After this time, the directors will need to make plans based on the numbers registered.
Pageant practice for first through fifth grades will take place during Sunday School on Sunday, Dec 12 and a special practice in the church for kindergarten through fifth grade on Saturday, Dec. 18 (9-11 a.m. for fourth and fifth grade and 10-11 a.m. for all other ages).
Fourth and fifth graders interested in submitting a Christmas drawing for the bulletin, please draw on white paper or card stock in pen or pencil and submit to Sloane Brooks by Monday, Dec. 13.
