December 21 and December 22

The dress rehearsal for the Children’s Christmas Program is scheduled for Saturday morning at 10:00. Costumes will be distributed at this time. Your children have the opportunity to dress as angels, shepherds, wise men, or Bethlehem animals. We need one or two parents to organize the distribution of the costumes along with their return on Sunday morning. Let me know if you are willing to assist in this way.

About the music: Attached are lyrics to three songs our children have been rehearsing with Kathryn. The verses of “Glory Be to the Newborn King” will be sung by the choir; our children will sing the chorus:

Glory be to the newborn King!
“Peace on earth,” hear the angels singing.
Glory be to the newborn King!
Peace on earth, hear the anthem ring.

Kathryn has provided a recording of this song, along with a recording of “Virgin Mary Had a Baby Boy.” Both songs your children will recognize. Please play these recordings for your children to help them feel even more comfortable with them on Sunday morning.

Following the rehearsal, we will visit Sunrise in Wayland (285 Commonwealth Road) for our annual carol sing. This is a treasured event for children and adults alike, as well as for the residents of Sunrise. Everyone is welcome!

Consider bringing a healthy snack on Saturday morning for all to share. We need someone to set-up the snacks during the rehearsal time and before leaving for caroling at 11:00. Let me know if you are willing to assist in this way.

Please arrive at church on Sunday morning by 9:10 to ensure that your children are ready with their costumes, etc. before worship. The children will remain with me in the Education wing of the building at the start of service. Once they are finished with their performance, they can sit with their families for the remainder of the service.

Your children’s voices sound wonderful while singing the songs and speaking the verses. Thank you for your support by bringing them to Sunday school these past few weeks and working with them at home. They are doing a beautiful job!

Please let me know if you have any questions about the Children’s Christmas Program. In the meantime, I look forward to seeing you and your children on Saturday.

“The Christian education program at Peace, where your child can experience God’s love through worship, learning, and fellowship.”
