Christmas Eve 

We have four services on Christmas Eve. Each one is slightly different:

10:30 a.m. - Children's Christmas Pageant with Morning Prayer 

The 10:30 a.m. service is Morning Prayer, and there is no Holy Eucharist.

The pageant is for all children ages three - 6th grade.  During the pageant, children help retell the story of Jesus’ birth through scripture and the singing of carols.  Every child receives a costume and plays a part in the story of the Birth of Jesus. Cookies and punch will be served afterwards in the Great Hall. There are no rehearsals for the pageants unless you are in the main cast. Children three - 6th grade come to the Great Hall at 10:00 a.m. to choose a costume and sit with their group until the service begins.

The nursery is open for children up to age three from 10:15 a.m. through the end of the service.

Adult volunteers are always needed to help create meaningful and beautiful Christmas pageants. To volunteer or if you have questions, please contact: Children's Christian Formation Director Kathleen Busbee, kbusbee@allsaintsbhm.org, or Jeannie Feldman, jeanniefeldman@att.net
