|Happy Thanksgiving! This note is an update on several things going on with Faith Formation.
First, our next multi-gen service is on December 10, our Christmas pageant entitled Peace, Joy, and Ho, Ho, Ho. There are significant parts for each of the kids to play.
During the Nov 19. Faith Formation class, children will be asked which parts they would like to have. Some are speaking parts, some are not. There is one song the children will be learning, which means we need to have a bit of rehearsal during our final two Sundays available: Nov 19 and Dec 3. They will be sent home with a script, which does not need to be memorized, but that we would like them to become familiar with; like last year, they will be able to read their parts. If your children are toddlers or preschoolers, there will be opportunity toward the end of the play for them (and you) to be on stage with the older children.
Even if you have not been in regular attendance, we would love for your children to participate in this fun, annual event. We do ask you make the commitment to be here for these three Sundays — Nov. 19, Dec. 3, and Dec 10 — so your kids feel connected with the process and understand what they need to do the day of the event.
For the benefit of this service and fun for your children, please commit to your children being at service on Nov. 19, Dec. 3, and Dec. 10 (the day of the service). — Yes, dear readers, this is a repeat, just in case you didn’t notice it the first time. Please forgive the redundancy.
On Dec. 10, please arrive by 9:15 so we can do a quick walk through and final music rehearsal before service.
