Family and Church School

The sign-up sheet for roles in our original Nativity Play “’Twas in the Moon of Wintertime” with a Native North American theme are up  on the church school bulletin board in the narthex.  There are speaking and non-speaking parts and a role for all children and youth who want one. Sign up for any parts you are interested in (there may be more than one person signing up for each role) and we will sort it out at the first practice. We also need parent helpers. The play will be on Sunday, January 4th at the 10:00 am service. Practices are Sundays Dec. 7, 14, 21 and 28th immediately after the 10:00 am service. Costumes and masks will be created by children at the Advent Party on Sunday, Dec. 7th at 5:00 pm.

We are looking for Native American props and costumes for our Nativity Play! Items like arrow quivers, buckskins, Indian Halloween costumes, Native jewelry (nothing valuable), Native baskets, and anything that would fit into that theme are needed. Please mark items with your name and leave them in large classroom #2 if you can lend them. Children will be making masks and costumes for the play during the Advent party, so attend if you can Sunday, Dec. 7th at 5:00 pm.
