Annual Christmas Program


This year the kids will lead the singing portion of the worship service on Sunday, December 6. We will practice right after church until about 12:15 throughout November. Practice will also take place every Wednesday during kids class. 

You can also have your kids listen to the songs through Youtube when you're at home. The link

 has a list (will be active on 10/29) of all the videos.

There are quite a few confirmation students who participate in children's church as helpers and are more than welcome to join in on the singing. Please ask your pre-teen/teen if he or she would also like to participate in the program!
