United Church of Kensington Christmas Program

Sunday, December 15, the United Church youth will present their Christmas musical called “The Christmas Express” written by Susie Williams, Celeste and David Clydesdale. Worship begins at 10:25 at the United Church at 204 West Cedar in Kensington and the musical will be performed during worship.

The delightful story is about the Christmas Express train that is making their annual journey to Bethlehem Pennsylvania to celebrate the birth of Jesus with a grand pageant there.  The question is who will God choose to ride the train on this special night. The audience will meet Mrs. Davis the pageant director and her students. The students will be joined with some special riders including a grumpy businesswoman who doesn’t believe in Christmas.  Through the special songs and narration the youth will share their joyful journey as God provides some special miracles on their train ride.  

Following the Christmas program, the church will provide hot beef sandwiches and party potatoes for lunch. Families attending are asked to bring either a salad or dessert.  The youth have been working hard on this special program and you are invited to come see their Christmas gift to the church.
