In 2018, Grace Lutheran Church was proud to present the premiere performance of “Mary Potter and the Manger of Magnificence.” Pastor Emmy Kegler and member Jon Hamlow put together a Christmas pageant celebrating the hard work of the wise men — “magi” in Greek, the root word for “magician” — in seeking the Chosen One, the Son of God, the most important baby of all.
Other churches are invited to participate in this delightful parody pageant incorporating many beloved characters from a popular wizarding series, from four characters defined by their bravery, cleverness, inclusion, and craftiness; a narrator with a stack of books unafraid to challenge the assumptions of the day; and a devoted shepherd with a ratty sock leading a flock of giant spiders.
Interested individuals and churches are invited to preview the content here and to request access to full scripts here.
On September 24 & October 1, during our regular education time, we’ll have the opportunity to come together as one “family” made up of many families (parents and kids, grandparents and great-aunts and grandsons, single folks, couples, and every other shade of family) to explore our faith together. Faith lived out can look very different from family to family; let’s explore that beautiful diversity of Christian life!
For the next two Sundays, we’ll be making prayer books together! Jennifer Schultz will teach us how to pull our own paper sheets and assemble them into books, while Pastor Emmy will teach about writing prayers and using fancy handwritten fonts.
PNO is a time for kids ages 4-12 to come together for mac & cheese dinner, fun, crafts, games, and a movie, while parents get a few hours to rest, relax, or even have a fun Friday night out!
Kids will be supervised by church staff and volunteers. All volunteers are members at Grace Lutheran and have had background checks.
This is a FREE event to benefit our Little Kitchen Food Shelf. Free will donations to LKFS are gladly accepted online or in person, or you may bring a non-perishable food item to the event if you wish.
Once a month, during our regular “Faith Exploration” education time, we take the opportunity to come together as one “family” made up of many families (parents and kids, grandparents and great-aunts and grandsons, single folks, couples, and every other shade of family) to explore our faith together through questions, conversation, and art.
