Pageant Sunday

This Sunday is our annual Christmas Pageant! That means there will not be any Sunday School classes – all children who are NOT participating in the pageant should go to church for the 10:00 service. Arrive a little early for a good seat to see everything! The nursery will remain open for our youngest.

If your child would *like* to participate but has not been involved in rehearsals, you can still show up! We try to make it easy to jump in as a sheep or an angel. There’s a dress rehearsal on Saturday which you are welcome to attend, or you can just come and make yourself known on Sunday morning in Thaxter Hall. Kids will be arriving btw 9-9:15 to get into costume. Let me know if you have any questions: ashley@stjohnsnh.org

Teenagers and big kids – we need your help too! We need banner bearers to walk the big banners down the aisle and helpers with the night sky… Nathan and Lizzie are good contacts for those jobs 🙂

Our upcoming Sunday schedule will look as follows:

  • Dec 23 – Pageant (No classes, nursery open)
  • Dec 30 – No Children/Youth Programs (Nursery closed)
  • Jan 6 – Sunday School and Youth Groups resume at 9:30AM

A friendly reminder that our musical rehearsals will being on Sunday Jan 6th. This year we are doing Willy Wonka – performance will be Feb 16 & 17. If you’re interested in learning more about this, let me know!
