Our Christmas Pageant Needs You!! On Sunday, Dec. 22 at 10 am, all ages will be invited to participate in our pageant called “We Are All Shepherds.” You need to decide whether you’ll be a shepherd, an angel or a sheep. Costumes are not required but STRONGLY ENCOURAGED! We’ll be inviting everyone to come a bit early to get a costume and to read the script that will be printed in a paper bulletin. No memorization, just follow the leader! If you know of a family of children who might like to participate in a pageant, we ask you to invite them. The more the merrier!!! Following the service, we’ll get together for a Christmas party potluck of finger foods. Birthday cake will be provided.
Children’s Ministry – We are looking for adults to assist Mackenzie Aldis, our main Sunday School Leader. There is no planning or teaching required. The job would be to assist Mackenzie and serve as a helper. With a long enough list, we are hoping to have a rotation so that volunteers would serve about once every two months. Please sign up with Rev. Dr. Christine Johnson.
