12-24-20 Virtual Christmas Pageant “Journey to Bethlehem”

Welcome to our very first virtual Christmas pageant, from the United Methodist congregations of Rock County, Wisconsin. We fondly recall how in most Decembers the children’s program fills our sanctuaries with joy and delight. We wanted to capture that experience this year with the young people of our congregations and share it with you.
After all, the very first Christmas didn’t go to perfection, and look what happened in that stable.
In the program you’re about to see, the children of our churches will take us on a Journey to Bethlehem.
Thank you to director Seongmin Kim and editor Jane Sommers, and to all the families who participated!
