Our Story – Childrens Christmas Programs
In December 1970 the church membership was 238 (and most of those were under three feet tall!). It was a great time to start having Christmas Programs featuring children! It created beautiful memories, funny moments and hopefully a child-like wonder at the celebration of Jesus birth. It has taken many forms over the years such as telling the Christmas story with costumed characters, Christmas plays, sharing Christmas traditions from around the world, children’s cantata with songs from each class, and even a family adventure of “unpacking the mystery of Christmas.” It has also taken many adults who stepped up to lead, direct, practice, and create costumes over the years. We are grateful for all those individuals for helping to make the Christmas story come alive.
Some of the past themes were:
1987 – The Customs of Christmas
1989, 1994, 2002 – Angels, Lambs, Ladybugs & Fireflies
1993 – Three Wee Kings
1995 – O My Stars Its Christmas
1997 – Holiday In Bethlehem
1998 – The Grumpy Shepherd
1999, 2003, 2008 – Christmas Around the World
2004 – It’s a Jingle Out There
2011 – The Jesse Tree
2014 – Unplugged Christmas
Just wanted to include some pictures from over the years. (Please remember that some of the past years are on videotapes that have not yet been added to our digital pictorial history.) We hope you enjoy these memories and dreams of future gatherings for Christmas.
