New Children’s Christmas Musical - A Conference Collaboration

May 30, 2015

That Starry Night, a new children’s Christmas musical, is now available. The musical includes contemporary songs and traditional carols and is recommended for children's choirs of 15 or more. The musical teaches us that all are welcome at church, everyone is important to the Christmas story and Jesus IS the reason for the season. Rev. Douglas Norris, a retired minister who served in our conference for over 30 years, adapted the nativity story for the show. Doug’s son, Craig, and his family wrote the music and script. Friend Jeremy Schulz (who serves as the music director at Point Pleasant Methodist Church) produced the CD. 20 children and adults from our annual conference family camp came together to record music and dialogue for the CD. The musical has been performed at four Methodist churches (First Palo Alto, Los Altos, Paradise Valley in AZ and Point Pleasant in Elk Grove).
