and All Kids with Talents They Would Like to Share!
During the 6 pm service on Christmas Eve, the children will perform a Christmas Play and share with us any special talents they have such as playing a Christmas song on the piano or flute or singing. The only requirement for participating is that the child will be at the 6 pm Christmas Eve Service. We will practice for the play for about 20 minutes after the regular Church services in December and will run through the play a few times before the 6 pm service on Christmas Eve. Please contact Anne Wilhoit (firstname.lastname@example.org, 916-726-2195) to participate and let her know if your child would prefer a speaking or non-speaking role and if they have any other talents they would like to share.
