Christmas Pageant Details

On Tuesday, December 18th at 6:30pm, the PDS Christmas Pageant for boys in grades 1-6 will be held in the sanctuary. The sanctuary will open at 5:45pm, and seating is on a first-come-first-serve basis. We appreciate your cooperation in not arriving before 5:45pm.

Live Stream

This event will be streamed live on the website for out of town friends and family members. Look for a link on the Parents page on the Tuesday, December 18th.

Pageant Drop-Off

The boys should report to their homerooms at 5:45pm on Tuesday evening. Boys in grades 1-5 should be dressed in white, long-sleeved dress shirts and khaki pants. The attire for the 6th-grade boys is based on their part in the program.

Pageant Pick-Up

After the program, the boys will return to their homerooms. A parent must pick up each boy in the classroom. If someone other than a parent will pick up your son, you must notify the teacher in advance. We will not release a boy to an older sibling.

Pageant Nursery

Because it may be difficult for young children to listen to the program, a nursery will be provided for children under the age of four. You must make reservations for the nursery via the PDS website.

Register For The Nursery

The deadline for making a reservation for the nursery is Wednesday, December 12th at 4:00 p.m.

We also request that all children attending the program remain seated in the pews with their parents for safety reasons.
