Holidays and Holy Days Rev . Kathleen Rudoff and Sierra-Marie Gerfao 
The exciting multigenerational service will offer a Christmas pageant, Hannukah songs, and an exploration of the winter solstice. Come and celebrate the season of light! This Year’s Christmas Pageant Will Be a No-Rehearsal Pageant – Get ready for some Christmas magic on Sunday, December 18. During the service, we will debut our first ever no-rehearsal Christmas pageant, including both kids and adults. Kids who have already signed up in advance will be assigned their parts in advance, but we will be liberally giving out additional parts the morning of the pageant. Arrive a little early if you are open to getting roped into the fun. It may seem like organized chaos, but we trust it will be magic.
