A group of children from St. Thomas Episcopal Church performed a Nativity Pageant on Tuesday, January 5th as part of the Epiphany service. The pageant, originally scheduled for December 20th, was postponed due to inclement weather. The new date made the wisemenís arrival particularly timely. Pageant participants included: Raven Whitley as Narrator; Lillian Kline as Mary; Edwin Lemus as Joseph; Evelyn Kline, Paloma Soto and Eli North as shepherds; Oscar North as a sheep; Evelyn Lemus, Jamie Lemus, and Odin Bueno as angels; and Isabella Davis, Gavin Henry, and Christian Angel as wisemen. The actors dressed in elaborate and inventive costumes including authentic items from Pakistan provided by Dr. David Johnson. The children prepared several songs for the pageant with childrenís choir leader Katey Shultz. The performance was reverent and delightful, and was enjoyed by an appreciative audience. Afterwards everyone celebrated with a potluck dinner. Pageant participants found Peggy Mannís strawberry dessert to be especially delicious! All families are welcome at St. Thomas. For more information about our youth programs, please contact Stacey Lane at 828-467-2165.
