Advent Family Celebration with Holy Eucharist December 16th at 10:00 a.m. at Emmanuel
All youth and their friends are invited to participate in the Advent Family Service on December 16th at Emmanuel.
In preparation for the celebration of Christmas the story of the nativity will be presented with costumes, readings and carols. However, since it is during the season of Advent, we will not be calling it a “Children’s Christmas Pageant” but rather an “Advent Family Celebration”.
Tentative Details: To prepare for our special service we will have a rehearsal luncheon at the parish hall on Saturday, December 15th at 11 o’clock. We will go over parts, practice songs, and distributed costumes, and then we’ll enjoy lunch together (with holiday goodies for dessert!). If you are unable to make it on Saturday, don’t worry. We will have extra costumes at the church the day of the service so that everyone may join us.
