News from the Atrium

Dear Families,
Every child is invited to participate in the Christmas Pageant this Thursday, Dec. 24, Christmas Eve, at 5:00pm.  The pageant will be the first half, or Word part, of the Eucharistic service.  Just choose a costume as you come in - they will be located right in the narthex (entrance).  
The children will sit with their families, just like last year, and process to the front if they wish, when the narrator announces.  They will rejoin their families at the Peace.
 Cindi will be there for the nursery this Thursday at 4:30.
Please arrive early, too, to get into costume.
The atrium will be open this Sunday, Dec. 27, at the regular times, to celebrate our new born King!
