“the nativity” christmas pageant

Sunday, December 5th at 10:00 AM (one service only)

Once again this year, a young boy, David, from Glenview in the year 2021, dreams about what it is like to watch as the story of the birth of Christ unfolds before him. Throughout his dream, he sees Angels and Shepherds experience a night of wonder and awe. He is amazed to see the three Magi and follows them as they make their journey to find the Child.  All of their journeys will end with a gathering at the place where Jesus is born.  David’s dream ends when he understands that he needs to bring together the children of all the world with hope for Peace on Earth. Join us for our 70-year-old tradition and invite a friend, teacher, neighbor, or member of another faith tradition!
