The young people of Irondequoit United Church of Christ, ranging in age from 5 months to 12 years, presented the story of Christmas to their congregation Dec.17.
Diana Pratt, who put together this presentation, directed these youngsters as they acted out this story. Jesus Christ’s birth was depicted by farm animals, baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph and a flock of angels; and was narrated by Ryan Hamblin, Landon Schoepfel, Penelope Paredes and Gabrielle Vache.
The IUCC congregation reacted with applause at the end of the story. A special Christmas offering was conducted by Margo Marksteijn, pastor, with assistance from MacKenzie and Landon Schoepfel. A celebration was held by all in the IUCC Fellowship area with a birthday cake for baby Jesus.
