When South Meriden Trinity UMC puts on a show, it's more than a play - it's a community coming together to celebrate being together in faith! People of all generations packed our church to see and participate in our annual Christmas Pageant as the message for our morning Christmas Eve service, in a production of "Let's Keep God's Love in Christmas." The story tells is about...a Christmas pageant that no one wants to be in! Everyone re-discovers how important the love that Christ brings to us in Christmas is to us together.
Special thanks go out to Daryl Fitzgibbons, who not only directed the play, but also brought together people who are a part of our extended church family into the production - including Gayle Wilkinson, who offered us a surprise - her lovely liturgical dance as a part of the play, and a baby playing Jesus! All of the children, adults, and family members rejoiced with carols, prayers of praise, and a wonderful meal afterwards. LOTS of photos in the slideshow below!
The day was finished of with a beautiful candlelight service at 7PM, where we told the story of Jesus' coming from the beginning of creation to Jesus' birth, finishing off with a candlelight singing of "Silent Night. Pastor John's sermon "Once Upon a Time" is in the worship podcast below (sorry for the audio problems), and the sermon text is here and below the podcast. Have a blessed Christmas celebration - the best real story in the world!
