The Christmas Story
This Sunday we’re bringing back a tradition, that of the annual Children’s Christmas Pageant at our First Service. The children and youth of Aldersgate will take on the roles of each of the characters of the Christmas story. This is something not to be missed. It will be fun, upbeat, a certainly will create memories for all that will carry long into this Christmas season and on into the New Year. Then, between services will be an opportunity to purchase Christmas treats and homemade items made by the United Methodist Women. It’s a scrumptious and creative time and another Christmas tradition.
But wait, there’s more. At second service Pastor Brad will be bringing a whole different perspective to the Christmas story as he becomes the infamous Bethlehem Inn Keeper. We know so little about this part of the story. Yet according to one child who wrote for the Huffington Post, “He’s the real hero of the story.” Why? Well, you’ll just have to come and find out. All in all it’s a morning not to be missed. Come for one service or come for the whole morning. If any Sunday will get you into the Christmas spirit, this is it. To prepare read both Christmas stories from the Bible, the one in Luke and the other in Matthew.
