Zoom Christmas Nativity Pageant
Our Christmas Pageant will be pre-recorded this year and be available to view on Christmas Eve.
I will be recording the pageant in sections on Zoom.
Recording will begin the week of December 13.
 
We need the following parts to be covered. (Participants can range from the ages of 0 to 102!)
Narrators
Emperor Augustus
Innkeepers (We want several innkeepers as some will have to turn the Holy Family away)
Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus (ideally this would be one family)
Shepherds (anyone can be a shepherd!)
Sheep (children make great sheep, but hey, so would your dog!)
Angels
Stable Animals (Do you have a donkey, chickens, etc. that would like a cameo part in the pageant? This is their year! Ask Sharon how!)
 
Costumes can be provided.
Let Sharon know what part you’d like to play!
