Children to present 'Christmas Shoe Tree'

Dec. 20, 2012 @ 12:00 AM

CHESAPEAKE -- Chesapeake United Methodist Church invites community members to a performance of the children's musical, "The Christmas Shoe Tree," during morning worship at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 23.

New songs and traditional favorites alike will be performed as the children share the good news of Christmas through Scripture, songs and a heartwarming story, according to a news release from the church.

"In an extension of the musical itself, all in attendance will be invited to show God's love in action as a collection of shoes and donations will be received for those in need all over the world," the release stated.

The shoes and donations will be received for Soles 4 Souls, a charity that distributes shoes worldwide and helps connect idle shoes in American closets with the more than 300 million children around the world who are without shoes.

Refreshments will follow the worship hour in the church fellowship hall. Chesapeake United Methodist Church is located at the corner of 5th Street and 2nd Avenue in Chesapeake.
