The pageant is Sunday, December 9th at 4pm . As a prelude to the pageant, children and congregation will sing and children will play along with chimes. If there are any students that play an instrument and would like to entertain the congregation before the start of the pageant, please let Mrs. Scudese and Laura Hamilton in the office know so that their name can be included in the Christmas Pageant program. The players will need to be at the church by 3:30 pm on the day of the pageant. If your child has volunteered to entertain the congregation before the pageant, please have he/she bring their instrument to the dress rehearsal on Saturday.
