First Christmas Play and Party Held in New Building

The first Children’s Christmas Play was presented in the new sanctuary the fourth Sunday of Advent, Dec. 20, followed by a party in the fellowship hall, the highlight of which was an appearance by Santa Claus.

The children put on an enjoyable performance, their innocence a perfect reminder of the innocence of the Christ child. Following, everyone had refreshments in the fellowship hall while merry ole Santa Claus passed out presents and spread cheer. It was a wonderful lead-up to our celebration of the birth of Christ.

This was the setting for the children’s play…

which had animals…

and angels.

Then everyone had punch and cookies and looked on…

As the jolly old elf passed out presents.
