Advent is coming and we are hoping to mark the season with our traditional Advent pageant.

However, like so many things during this crazy time, we are going to get to do it in a creative, new way. Gretchen is seeking household units or “pods” of people who are exposed to one another to do each week of the Advent Pageant. Our hope is to film in the sanctuary and share the videos of the pageant in our weekly online church service.

Please look at our casting needs below and consider if your household or pod would be able to do one of our pageant segments. Please contact Gretchen at gretchenj@fcceugene.org with questions and interest.
