Children’s Pageant “Christmas Special Delivery” @ First Presbyterian Church of Cranford | Cranford | New Jersey | United States

At 4:00pm, more than 25 children from first to eighth grade, under the direction of Elsa Hahn and
accompanied by Ann Weeks, will present the children’s Christmas pageant entitled “Christmas
Special Delivery”, arranged by Mark Brymer and Mark Bernthal. Christmas is in the air, and so is the
Christmas crunch! Deadlines, wrapping, packing, traffic and general chaos are on today’s route for
mailman Gabriel Wilson….who hasn’t figured out how he’ll find the Christmas spirit with all these
last-minute stops, let alone how to deliver that mysterious bulky box in his bag. A miracle is on the
way, however, and it’s a heaven-sent delivery that brings Christmas straight to the heart.
