BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- The Broxville Reformed Church will celebrate it's 58th annual Christmas Pageant on Sunday, beginning at 4 pm.
Youth minister Addison Quayle said the high school students who are part of the congregation have been rehearsing since Thanksgiving for the show.
Quayle said that the show traces the Christian story of Christmas, beginning with the Bible story of the Angel Gabriel visiting Jesus' mother Mary, and ending when the Three Wise Men arrive to pay tribute to the newborn baby Jesus. There is live music, costumes, songs and prayers throughout the pageant, Quayle said.
"All of the main parts are played by high school seniors," Quayle said. "Being able to step into one of those parts is something the kids look forward to every year."
Quayle said that although the pageant is a worship service, it also serves as a time to share a gift with someone else.
"Congregants and guests are encouraged to wrap a toy in white paper, identify who the toy would be suited to, such as a nine-year-old boy, or a five-year-old girl and bring it up as a gift to celebrate the birth of Jesus," he said.
Quayle said that everyone is welcome to the pageant and there is no charge to attend. "We hope to receive many gifts that we can share with children for Christmas," he said.
