PRINCEVILLE — The community is invited to participate in a “Living Nativity Pageant” at the Church of the Pacific at 6:30 p.m. Sunday. The event is the story of Christmas performed with people and live animals outdoors under the stars on the church grounds.
“We’ve been doing the Live Nativity Pageant at Church of the Pacific for 15 years,” said retired Pastor Glenn Frazier. “It’s a colorful drama which anyone in the community can just jump in and participate. We have lead actors who direct the various components — no rehearsal is necessary. Just come and have fun celebrating with us.”
Youth participants will also be coming from various churches across the island. There are plenty of costumes.
“The community is also welcome to bring any biblical costumes,” Mary Frazier said. “Shepherds and angels, especially.”
Folks who would like to participate should arrive by 5:30 p.m. for fitting and a easy run through and to acquaint themselves to be around live animals safely (do not bring pets).
At 6:10 p.m, the Waioli Church choir of Hanalei will lead in community singing of Christmas carols in Hawaiian and English. Since it is outdoors under the stars, folks are reminded to bring a mat and/or lawn chair for sitting, warm clothing and blankets for the cool air, and a flashlight.
After the living pageant, there will be refreshments and then a special performance, “The Shepherd’s Play,” by the Community Actors of the North Shore in the church sanctuary.
Church of the Pacific is at 4520 Kapaka Road in Princeville.
