The public is invited online to the First Presbyterian Union Church in Owego this Sunday, Dec. 20 at 10 a.m., for their annual Christmas Pageant via Zoom (FPUC’s first time having its pageant on zoom). “Christmas As We Remember It, Zoomed In for Everyone” was written for Christmas 2020.
This year, from the comfort of your home, experience the wonderful story of Jesus’ birth as part of the Sunday Worship Service at FPUC. Over 25 actors and actresses will reenact this intergenerational drama for all to enjoy and recollect.
Come early at 9:45 a.m. to enjoy the “Gathering” slide show of past pageants. The Zoom meeting is at 819 4028 9108, Password: FPUC. All are welcome.
