Welcome to the Christmas singing season!

Each Advent, children ages 3 years old (by July 31st preceding the Christmas programs) through 5th grade are invited to share their gifts of music and story-telling. To participate, please complete the registration below by Oct. 31.

Rehearsals begin Nov. 3. This year the programs will be on Sun., Dec. 19. For the safety of all participants, children in the Children’s Christmas Programs will be required to wear a face mask over their nose and mouth for all rehearsals as well as the day of the programs.

Information for Preschool and Kindergarten

Young children are divided into 3 programs: 3-year-old class, combined 4/5-year-old classes and Kindergarten. On Sunday mornings, children will practice in their regular classrooms. New this year will be a 3 week Christmas Program Learning Academy option for preK and kindergarten students. Students who would like to participate in this additional option will gather on Nov. 3, 10 and 17 from 6:30-7:30pm with each week focusing on different characters from the Christmas program story. Activities will include story time, singing, crafts, games and making a simple gift to give away. Room parents are needed to help with crafts. Please mark your interest on the registration form.

Information for Grades 1-5

Children in grades 1-5 will be divided into two separate programs. Your child will either be a part of the “Sunday Program” or the “Wednesday Program”. Wednesday rehearsals will begin Wed., Nov. 3, at 6:30pm. Sunday rehearsals will begin Sun., Nov. 7 at 11am. For your convenience you may come to either Sunday or Wednesday rehearsals so that your child doesn’t miss any rehearsal time… BUT… for the dress rehearsals and for the day of the program, your child will be in the program for which you register.

5th graders have the option of a speaking role. Those who are in the drama will have an additional rehearsal on the morning of Sat., Nov. 20 and may be asked to be available for both programs as well as both dress rehearsals. Please mark your 5th graders desire for a speaking role.

All 1-5 graders will have the opportunity to sing in worship on Sun., Dec. 5.
