Sunday School Parents!
Some important dates to keep in mind:
November 20th: We will discuss the roles with the kids
in Sunday School and they will indicate their top three (3)
November 27th: Pageant roles will be assigned
December 17th: Saturday morning practice, 10:00 a.m.
December 18th: Pageant
We will practice during Sunday School, so please plan to have your child attend service the weeks up to the Pageant. It would be fantastic if some of the older junior high and high school students will consider contributing their creative talent and energy to the Pageant. We would love their involvement! Looking forward to a blessed holiday season! Susanne, Nancy and Michelle
