The puppets are coming “out of the bags” again in September 2017 for another year of dancing, singing and storytelling.

puppet-2No experience is necessary, If you’d like to join us, just a willing pair of hands is all that is needed! For grade school age children who love to perform but are a little shy in front of a crowd here’s a new group of thespians who perform “under cover.”

PUPPETS IN CHURCH is for children in grades 1-6 who would like to learn the arts of puppetry and apply them to music, worship, storytelling and general entertainment in the church. Our regular meeting time will be each Sunday at 4:45-5:15 p.m, starting on September 10, 2017.

NEW!  This year we will expand the PUPPETS IN CHURCH for youth.  Grades 7 and up are invited to join this new expanded group to learn how to use the bigger professional puppets also blacklight & hand mime puppetry.  Our regular meeting time will be each Sunday at 4:00-4:30 p.m., starting on September 10, 2017.
