Children of all ages are invited to participate in our Living Crèche (nativity scene) as either angels or shepherds at this year’s 5 p.m. Christmas Eve service. Costumes will be available in Barbour Chapel before service for the children to wear over their clothes. They will sit with their families in the sanctuary until it’s time to walk up to the chancel. Lead shepherds and angels will signal the appropriate time and will help usher the children to the front of the church. Children will return to their seats right after the Christmas message and before the offering. In addition to helping the Christmas story come alive, children who participate will also get a front row view of the baby Jesus. We are also encouraging children to bring a “white gift” (food donations wrapped in white tissue paper) which they will place in the baskets on the chancel steps. The donations will be given to a local
community food bank. We look forward to your children participating in this beautiful service.
