December 10 at 11am - Peaceable Pageant: The children of the Peaceable Kingdom invite you to their annual Christmas Play. This year the children will share "Light of the World" as the Christmas story. Through narration, drama, and song the children will share how Jesus came to be the "Light of the World" over 2,000 years ago. From the prophetic words of Isaiah to the mystery of Jesus' birth, we look forward to experiencing this story anew with you. Let us get ready for the Light together.
There will be a cookie Fellowship after the Pageant!
