Be a Part of the St. Paul's
2017 Christmas Pageant!
As family calendars for the fall are filled, all are warmly encouraged and invited to participate and serve in the Christmas Eve Pageant. It is a generations old tradition at St. Paul’s Church. People of all ages, from infants, toddlers through teens and up to parents, all come together to produce and perform the good news of Christ’s birth as told from the scripture.
This is a chance to learn the real story, as well as, serving the church in its worship on this Holy Night. Involvement in this pageant produces friendships, life memories, in addition to, experiencing the transformative power of celebrating the incarnation, Emmanuel, God with us!
