The Children/Youth of ULCPC will present:
“On Our Way to Bethlehem”
Arranged : John Jacobson & Roger Emerson
Directed by: Susan Ashby, Music Director
Take the journey...then and now...to Bethlehem. This sweet little Christmas musical will warm your heart as our younger children portray Biblical characters in rhyming dialog and song, while the older youth will share the significance of this special journey as it relates to us today. The message and the re-telling of the Nativity story through the eyes of children is something you will definitely NOT want to miss out on this Christmas season! We hope that you and your family can join us for this meaningful message of our journey to the manger!

“The Christmas Story”
A Classic Carol Celebration & Adult Choir Cantata
Arranged By: Tom Fettke & Thomas Grassi Directed By: Susan Ashby
The story of Christmas is filled with glorious images of promise, joy, love, faith, worship, and of course, the baby Jesus-God's great gift of salvation. The Adult Choir has been working on this special cantata, which is a blend of thirteen familiar and some lesser-known carols that are a refreshing perspective on the timeless tale. Through scripture and worship, we will celebrate the birth of our Lord at the most wonderful time of the year! We hope that you will join us for our worshipful Christmas celebration through music & song!
An excited group of people gathered early on Saturday morning to set up the games and tents, decorate the picnic shelter, and prepare the tables for the meal for our highly anticipated group of children and their families. We were pleased with our turnout for the overcast day filled with a lot of other activities in Abbeville at the same time.
Our spirits were high as we gave the children that attended “Sharing God’s Joy” bags with prizes and candy which was won while playing games and filled their tummies with hotdogs, popcorn and flavored snow cones. They also had fun playing in inflatable units provided by our Upper Long Cane Christian Education Committee. The adults enjoyed the same food and had the opportunity to gaze at classic cars that were on display. We thank the “Classic Car” Club for their participation in our yearly Saturday event to celebrate the FALL season and give a little back to our community.
We had a lot of games that we enjoyed making. Some of them were: “Pick Frank” (Frank’s nose was filled with slime and candy.), Airplane Toss, Froggy Challenge, Witch’s Hat Ring Toss, Tic Tac Toe, Go Fish, Monkeys In a Barrel, Cake Walk, and numerous other games. Everyone seemed to enjoy the games and hotdog meals. The fun and fellowship was shared by in excess of a hundred people.
The C.E. Committee would like to say a special thanks to all that helped make this event successful. It would not have been possible without such dedicated folks to God’s work.
