Christmas in the Time of COVID

The Christmas Story in the Time of COVID–submissions dues by Dec 6
COVID ChristmasWe can’t gather together in person this Christmas, but we can still have some fun together telling the Christmas story (like in past years, but virtually)! Leigh-Ann Morris Collett and Kendra Petersen are putting together a video for the December 13 worship service. It’s a fun participatory version of the Christmas story of Mary & Joseph, the baby Jesus, innkeepers, shepherds, angels, and animals. You can help tell this with submitting pictures/artwork (starry night, a map, an inn, travel route) to use as backgrounds and/or short videos or pictures of you as a character such as an innkeeper (opening a door, saying no), an angel (singing, speaking to someone) a shepherd (looking surprised), animals (you or your pets in costumes made from items around your house). These will be put together as a video. Contact Us for more details.
