For 100 years, the Mattapoisett Congregational Church has presented the Christmas Story to the community in a unique combination of storytelling, music, prayer, and mission. The White Gifts Pageant Sunday will be held on Sunday, December 17 at 3:00 pm in Reynard Hall, 27 Church Street. White Gifts Sunday is celebrated throughout the world on the third Sunday of Advent, referring to gifts for those in need wrapped in white paper. Gifts collected in Mattapoisett during the pageant will help local children. Gift Tags are available starting November 26. Monetary donations are welcomed. People of all ages and talent are welcome to participate as readers, musicians, set design, acting, costumes, and more. The first rehearsal will be held on November 26 from 4:30 – 5:30 pm; leads must attend all rehearsals.
