Faith Lutheran Church’s Sunday School Rehearses Pageant for Christmas Eve Service

Students enrolled in Faith Lutheran Church’s Sunday School are getting ready. As part of the Christmas Eve Family Service at 4:00 pm on December 24th, 26 children who are ages 3 through 11, will be presenting their version of the Christmas story complete with songs, sign language, and lots of excitement. The pageant is an opportunity for the youngest members of Faith to share their infectious Christmas joy with family, friends, neighbors and visitors of all ages.

The cast will act out the Christmas story and sing their hearts out to “Away in a Manger,” “Three Kings Came on Camelback,” and “He Came Down.” Rehearsals are led by dedicated, enthusiastic and caring Sunday School teachers/volunteers who have taught the regular Sunday School curriculum throughout the year. These teachers are bringing their individual talents to bear on this collaborative project.Co-Chair of Youth and Family Ministry, Maureen Lamberti is the director, taking the kids through the script and their blocking at each rehearsal. Marisa Mangione and Lauren Scott are the song leaders, running through the music with the help of Jason Scott, rehearsal pianist. Lauren and Marisa also taught the children the American Sign Language for “Away in a Manger,” and two older students prepared a video with the signs to help parents and children practice at home. Long-time teacher Kim Delatour greets the children as they come in, gets them focused and settled down, and then helps corral them during rehearsal.

Instead of costumes, each child will have a representative prop that will help identify the part they are playing. (more…)
