Christmas Pageant Practice - Tomorrow at 4:30 PM
The casting call goes out - We are in need of shepherds and magi, angels and sheep and the Holy Family and narrators for the 4:30 PM Christmas Eve Pageant.
We will have two practices: The first is tomorrow, Friday, December 8 and Friday, December 15 from 4:30 to 5:30 PM.
If everyone could make a special effort to attend tomorrow's practice so we can give out the parts (including the youth group that will do "new" narrator parts). There are non-speaking acting parts for all the Sunday School children and even our 3 year old's can participate as little angels and sheep.
