Carol Party and Pageant a great celebration!

Our Carol Party was wonderful again this year, with lots of carol singing and talented musicians and plays by both the youth group and our younger kids, a visit from Santa and goodies for all!

The youth group presented their own version of Charlie Brown's Christmas (including using their smartphones at Linus's famous line, "Lights, please!"). Our kids ministries' coordinator Sharon read the story "Samauri Santa" and the younger children acted it out. Choir member Kelly Paul played traditional pieces on mandolin and on flute. Ouriana and Rowyn sang Silent Night. Sharon and Vinay accompanied us as we sang. And Shirley and Valerie brought it all together.

Thanks to all the performers, to everyone who donated food, to "Santa," and to everyoen who helped set up and clean up after!
