This Sunday is our annual Christmas Pageant!
On our fourth Sunday of Advent, UPA traditionally celebrates our children’s Christmas Pageant. This year will be a little different than it has been in years past, with participants of all ages. The Christian Ed Board, Pei, and Sheryl have done a great job reconfiguring how this would look this year and we’ve received a wide variety of videos to put this together from many UPA families and members. Thanks to everyone who has put this together and a big thanks to Jacob, who has done much of the video editing for the pageant! Like last week’s music service, I know this worship will be a memorable experience for all.
I also want to draw your attention to our Christmas Eve service. We will have a live-streamed service, featuring live solo harp music, children playing bells, and our Youth Rock Band, at 5:30pm. We will also have short outdoor, in-person candle light services starting at 7:15pm. We’ll be spreading out to sing Christmas carols together. We are limited to 25 participants per service, but we want to make sure that everyone who wants to can attend. In order to facilitate this we have created a signup for the first service. When that fills up, we will create a new sign up at 8 pm. If that service fills we will create another, and another. In order for this to work, we need people to sign up early. If you are planning on going, please sign up as early as you can so that we make sure we can plan for enough services.
Please use this link to sign up: https://signup.com/client/
If you have any questions about signups for the in-person services you can reach out to myself or Melissa in the office.
You can join us for Sunday’s service via Zoom and Facebook Live. For Zoom log in please contact Chris at Chris@newtonchurch.org.
