I was so proud of our children and youth in the Christmas Pageant last Sunday. After weeks of rehearsals, and choir practice and encouragement from all the directors, the Pageant Cast really pulled it off!! The church was very full and the kids acted as if they were Broadway professionals. I heard from someone right after church that said the Pageant was “…funny, but poignant and very moving.” That was exactly what we were going for!!
