2018 Children's Christmas Program

Posted by Lee Ann Roeder on Oct 18, 2018

From Gloria Worth

I know it is not Halloween yet and here I am talking about Christmas. But I do know how crazy the holiday season can be for our families and it is likely many of you are making plans for the Christmas season with your extended family. It has been a tradition for us to have a family service on Christmas Eve wherein our children in grades Kindergarten through 5th grade put on a performance within the worship service. This year we are making a slight departure from that tradition. 

We have found over the past few years many of our children are leaving town for Christmas to be with family, or they have other commitments on Christmas Eve. Because of this our children would prepare for the program but then actually not be able to participate. This year we will have the children’s Christmas Program on Sunday, Dec. 16, during the 10:45 a.m. worship service. Closer to the date we will be giving you exact details of what to expect. The children will be practicing with Gail Powell on Sunday mornings during the opening time, and also there is additional practice on Kids in Christ Friday nights. The dates for Kids in Christ in November are Nov. 9 and Nov. 30. Once we get into December we will have back-to-back Kid’s nights on Dec. 7 and 14. Kid’s Night is for our children in Kindergarten through 5th grade.

Please put these dates on your calendar. We are really excited about this change and we are looking forward to all of our kids in Kindergarten through 5th grade being able to participate in this program. We are still putting together the details for our children in our Pre-K classes as to how they might participate within the program. Details, details are always out there when we begin to try new things, so stay tuned!
