Little Flower Christmas program takes stage tomorrow

The Little Flower School children and staff invite everyone to attend our Christmas program on Sunday, Dec. 11 at 2 p.m. in the Tilman Hovland Auditorium at Rugby High School. The preschool students will begin the program with a Christmas medley, followed by the kindergarten students assisted by their fifth grade buddies. The students in grades 1-6 will then present “A Christmas Carol: Scrooge in Bethlehem”. This musical intertwines the story of the birth of Jesus with the Charles Dickens classic tale of Ebeneezer Scrooge and his adventure on a special Christmas night. Come and witness Mr. Scrooge’s change of heart, with the help of three Christmas angels, as he experiences the love of Jesus.

Refreshments and Christmas goodies will be served immediately following and a free-will offering will be accepted.
