Join us for “The Christmas ABC’s!” Formatted for young children and their families, Willow Stephens and members of the Virginia Road band will lead in joyful carols throughout this interactive service. Bring your favorite schoolyard instrument and be prepared to have fun while we tell the story of Jesus’ birth in a fun (and slightly noisy!) tradition! And Visit the Live Nativity Animals in the Courtyard!
Kids 3rd to 6th graders are invited to participate with leading (speaking) parts in this year’s Nativity Pageant! Please contact NMacmillan@smccpby.com by December 6. Second grade and younger are welcome to participate as angels and shepherds. Participants come early (by 3:40 P.M.), to pick out a costume.
