All kindergarten-6th grade children are invited to take part in Keller UMC's presentation of Kathie Hill’s, Band of Shepherds, on Sunday, December 2, at 6pm.Come join us in learning and performing this rockin’ musical about a band of shepherds hired to entertain the crowds arriving in Bethlehem for the census. As Christmas Eve advances, the band auditions a new singer, Joyce, who tells of the promised Messiah. A visitation from some rapping angels and a meeting of the Christ Child transforms these hopeless shepherds both musically and spiritually. It has many opportunities for solos and speaking parts for the 3rd–6th graders and your Kinder through 6th grader will love the upbeat music in this program! Following the program we invite you to join us for a dessert reception in the FLC!

Rehearsals are Wednesdays, 6:15-7pm, in FLC 204-205 and begin September 5. Registration for children's choir will close on September 26 so that the children will have adequate time to learn the materials for Christmas. Registration will re-open in January. For more information, contact Audrey Peterbark.
