The community is also invited for the Heavenly Christmas Program at 7 p.m. Wednesday Dec. 21. Choirs and dancers, joined by the church’s Chinese and English adult choirs, will perform. All the children will be dressed as angels. The program will also feature a comedy/drama performed by the students.
The varsity and junior varsity teams just finished the volleyball and football seasons. The three children’s choirs, joined by the bell choir and dancers, participated in all church services during October as well as the installation of the church’s new minister, Rev. Carl Kaye.
The four cornerstones of Emmaus Lutheran School, a Christian academy, are Christ, Curriculum, Character, and Community. Students develop self-worth and good moral values through a variety of opportunities in drama, music, dance, musical instruments, sports, and community service.
Emmaus Church and School has been serving the academic and spiritual needs of children from preschool through eighth grade for the past 75 years.
