Rehearsals for Annual Christmas Pageant
One of the most anticipated and special events of the year is coming to Parkway UCC on December 16, 2012. The children of our church are getting ready for our Traditional Annual Christmas Pageant. This year, it is Not So Silent Night, a play about three shepherds being accused of disturbing the peace. From the senior high students to the pre-school excitement is growing on who will get to be the judge, witnesses, shepherds, angels, and Mary and Joseph. Come join us on Dec. 2 as we pick parts and costumes. There will be 2 mandatory rehearsals for speaking parts, December 9 during Sunday School at 9:30 and Saturday, December 15.
Prom Committee Needed
PUCC is hosting our very own prom (for all ages) on Saturday, February 9. Just like in high school, we need a committee to plan this magical evening. We seek volunteers from a variety of age groups so this prom has something for everyone. This will not be a big time commitment. Enthusiasm is a must!
Please contact Lisa Mason: email@example.com | 314-569-0095 me if you are willing to be part of the planning.
