This year, First U’s children will present a new holiday pageant, The Mitten Tree. Our Director of Religious Education, Beth Moss, has adapted this beloved holiday story, originally written by Candace Christiansen, into a special pageant.
We are pairing the pageant with a kids’ mitten and winter clothing drive for Cradles to Crayons. One in three children in Chicagoland lives in poverty; you can help! Please bring new or clean, gently used children’s winter clothing items, to the DRE’s office starting December 1. Final donations will be collected during on Pageant Sunday. If you wish to knit your own mittens start now!
