Sunday, December 14, 2014 – 5:30 p.m.

We invite everyone to come enjoy an evening of song as our very talented children perform the Christmas musical, “An Unplugged Christmas” on
Sunday, December 14th, at 5:30 p.m.
Rehearsal for the musical is on Sunday, December 7th, immediately following worship (lunch will be provided). Those with speaking parts will stay until 3:30 p.m. Others may be picked up at 2:30 p.m.
If another rehearsal is needed, it will be on Saturday, December 13th, 10:30 a.m. – noon.

On Sunday, December 14th, we are scheduling the participants to arrive in waves so that we can streamline the costuming process and reduce the amount of time that our younger participants must wait. We will send notes home with arrival details for each participant. If you do not receive your note by December 7th, please call Amy Young (677-1482) or Rebecca Heidt (601-2469).

We thank all of the youth and their parents for their willingness to share their talents. We are excited to share it with you and encourage you to bring your friends. We will collect an offering that will go to support Family Promise, a program to benefit the homeless in Effingham County.

Please bring Finger Foods to share for fellowship afterwards.


We are asking for your help with refreshments for the event.
A sign-up sheet for finger foods is in the narthex. Thank you!
