Help Costume for the Christmas Pageant (which will be 12.15 in worship)

Old First Sunday School Christmas Pageant, one of our favorite Christmas season worship services — and a great time to invite friends to church — will take place on Sunday, December 15 at 11 a.m.

The Sunday School teachers are working with the kids on their parts. So are their parents.

There will be important rehearsals during the Sunday School hour on Dec. 1, 8 and 15. WE NEED ALL CHILDREN TO BE PRESENT.

But we thought there might be an opportunity for more people to get involved. So to this group effort, they are welcoming your time, talent, and treasure as we prepare for the annual Christmas Pageant.

We need your stewardship to help prepare the costumes for the pageant. We recommend that the costumes remain simple and inexpensive. We have created a list of suggestions next to each costume. Feel free to use these suggestions or be as creative as possible. All costumes are welcome whether it was bought whole, pieced together, or made by hand. Here at Old First we believe that no matter where you are on your fashion designing journey, you are welcome here.

Costumes are due December 8th, 2013, which is one week before the pageant. There is a sign-up sheet on “the bagel table” in the lower narthex before church. Write your name and phone number next to each costume(s) you would like to provide. Or you can call me (267-449-3693) to sign up and/or with any questions or concerns.

Let your inner clothing designer get to work!!!
