On Dec. 13, at 6 p.m., Centerpoint Kids will present a Christmas musical entitled, “The Best Christmas Present Ever! Happy Birthday, Jesus,” by Celeste Clydesdale.
We would like to invite the children in Pagosa Springs, grades K-6, to join us. Rehearsals begin Friday, Oct. 2, after school, until 5 p.m. Our rehearsal schedule will be the first Friday of each month, after school until 5 p.m., and every Monday, after school until 5.
The following is an excerpt from the forward of the musical by Celeste Clydesdale:
“The story in this musical is about a group of children from a local church who have only one week to invite people from all over their town to a birthday party for Jesus. Each day, they meet back at the church to share responses of the people that were invited. The way that each person in the musical responds to their invitation correlates to the way one of the persons in the Christmas story reacted to the news of Christ’s birth.
“The defining moment of the musical is a gentle manger scene featuring Carol Cymbala’s sweet song, ‘Happy Birthday, Jesus.’ In the Finale, I used a wonderful praise song by Lincoln Brewster called ‘Love the Lord’ which reminds us all to ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and with all your strength.’
“My prayer is that many children, parents and friends in your church and community will answer Christ’s knocking on the door of their hearts. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if they actually received The Best Christmas Present Ever?”
Centerpoint Church would love to have you join us as we celebrate the birthday of our King!
