Sunday School Christmas Service Resources
This year we will be doing a traditional Children’s Sunday School Christmas Service called “His Name is Jesus,” which is a reflection on the many names of Jesus and what they mean to us. It will take place during our regularly scheduled 5:00 Worship Service on Saturday Evening, December 14 (Snow day is December 15). We would love all kids to be a part of this experience.
EVERYONE: *We would love for all Sunday School Children to participate. Each Sunday School class will memorize a verse/song(see below) that will be spoken/sung during the program. All classes will also participate in singing 4-5 songs. Please Jeff know if you are unable to attend.
**There are 4 narrator parts. Priority for these will be given to 4th and 5th graders.
**There are some additional parts for 1st-5th Graders. A)An opportunity to hold up a sign B)Read (or memorize) an individual part. In some cases they may be read in conjunction with a video, so there might be a timing element. But that is the extent of difficulty. I would ask parents to help with this, especially working on annunciation and speed.
PARENT OPPORTUNITIES A)Help get kids from place to place during practice/the night of the service B)1-2 people that could help with actions to songs (this would involve coming on Sunday mornings too for when we practice). C)The day of the service: 1)Come early and set-up refreshments 2)serve refreshments after the service 3)Help with clean-up
*EVERYONE should plan to attend a practice on Saturday, December 7 from 10:30-11:30am (meet in the 300 wing)
*Those with speaking or acting roles should plan to stay until about 12:30pm on December 7 for an additional run-through.
ON THE DATE OF THE PROGRAM (December 14)
