    MICHAEL ENGLISH IN CONCERT

    Date: December 1, 2019

    Time: 11:00 AM

    Location: Fellowship Church – Chapel on Southern Maryland Christian Academy Chapel

    Details: For the past two weeks you may be wondering on the sign who MICHAEL ENGLISH is but for those that don’t know of him he is a multi GRAMMY Award Winner and 10x time Dove Award Winning artist and considered one of the greatest voices in Christian music world-wide. He has recorded with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, sung at the Kennedy Center, lead vocal singer to Gaither Vocal Band and numerous NUMBER ONE hits played on WGTS 91.9,  WAVA 105.1 and countless stations across America. He was to record a duet with Grammy Winner RAY CHARLES but he passed right before going into studio. His soulful voice is almost unmatched and very few have his vocal power. His music and minsitry crosses denominational and racial barriers bringing folks together and all agree he can flat out sing. His story is also one of grace and second chances and we all could use some of that this Holiday Season.

      Location: Fellowship Church – Chapel on Southern Maryland Christian Academy Chapel

      Details: For the past two weeks you may be wondering on the sign who MICHAEL ENGLISH is but for those that don’t know of him he is a multi GRAMMY Award Winner and 10x time Dove Award Winning artist and considered one of the greatest voices in Christian music world-wide. He has recorded with the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir, sung at the Kennedy Center, lead vocal singer to Gaither Vocal Band and numerous NUMBER ONE hits played on WGTS 91.9,  WAVA 105.1 and countless stations across America. He was to record a duet with Grammy Winner RAY CHARLES but he passed right before going into studio. His soulful voice is almost unmatched and very few have his vocal power. His music and minsitry crosses denominational and racial barriers bringing folks together and all agree he can flat out sing. His story is also one of grace and second chances and we all could use some of that this Holiday Season.

    (Holiday Musical) ​Based on the cherished 2003 New Line Cinema hit. Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. This modern-day holiday classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner elf. After all, the best way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear!

      (Holiday Musical) ​Based on the cherished 2003 New Line Cinema hit. Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. This modern-day holiday classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner elf. After all, the best way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear!

    This year’s breakfast is being provided by Jeff’s Burgers and includes: pancakes (with butter & syrup) and your choice of either (pork) sausage or hash browns in a special treat box. Orange juice and water will also be offered. After each child has eaten, they can participate in various activities, such as make & take crafts and get a festive design painted on their cheeks until 10:00 AM. Face painting is $5 for any size design and paid directly to the vendor (About Face Face Painting LLC). At 10:00 am, we will conduct a drawing from each parents ticket stub numbers and the winners will get to play the “punch game” to pull prizes…you all have seen the Price is Right, correct?…our game is similar to their “Punch a Bunch” except you only punch once and win the prize located behind the punch.

    Remember the bracelets or shakers each child received when they entered the event? At approximately 10:15/10:30 AM, Santa will lead our guests (parents/guardians plus their child/children) around the upper level of the mall and downstairs via escalator) to in front of Macy’s Home store in a “Jingle Bell Parade”. As everyone parades around the upper level, each child can shake their jingle bell bracelets or shakers and sing with Santa. Once they arrive in front of Macy’s Home Store, our 19 Days ’til Christmas – Party begins! The deejay will get the party started with popular music… while the music is playing, in addition to dancing…children can participate in other fun festive activities like Cake Pop decorating, more crafts, more face painting, popcorn and there will be Pinatas! Break the Pinatas for Christmas candy!

    Please Note:
    Parents/Guardians (if they choose to eat breakfast) must pay for their own meal(s) at regular price. All crafts, jingle bells & festive party hats, treats, etc. are while supplies last.

Come along on this grand holiday adventure as Wendy and her brothers accompany Peter back to Neverland to share the story of Scrooge and teach the Lost Boys the traditions of Christmas. But if you think this sounds like a merry little celebration, well, to paraphrase Ebenezer, “bah humbug!” For while the ever-jealous Tinkerbell sulks at Wendy’s presence, wicked Captain Hook and his zany band of pirates concoct an evil scheme to sabotage the children’s festivities. Now, it’s up to Peter Pan, the Lost Boys, the Darlings, and a comical, Dickens-inspired reenactment to show Hook the error of his ways and ultimately save Christmas in Neverland.

    (Holiday Musical) ​Based on the cherished 2003 New Line Cinema hit. Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. This modern-day holiday classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner elf. After all, the best way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear!

      Details: From the moment Peter Pan eavesdrops at the Darling’s nursery window and overhears Mrs. Darling reading “A Christmas Carol” to her children, Christmas becomes more spirited than ever before! Come along on this grand holiday adventure as Wendy and her brothers accompany Peter back to Neverland to share the story of Scrooge and teach the Lost Boys the traditions of Christmas. But if you think this sounds like a merry little celebration, well, to paraphrase Ebenezer, “bah humbug!” For while the ever-jealous Tinkerbell sulks at Wendy’s presence, wicked Captain Hook and his zany band of pirates concoct an evil scheme to sabotage the children’s festivities. Now, it’s up to Peter Pan, the Lost Boys, the Darlings, and a comical, Dickens-inspired reenactment to show Hook the error of his ways and ultimately save Christmas in Neverland.

      (Holiday Musical) ​Based on the cherished 2003 New Line Cinema hit. Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to find his birth father and discover his true identity. Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas. This modern-day holiday classic is sure to make everyone embrace their inner elf. After all, the best way to spread Christmas Cheer is singing loud for all to hear!

Come along on this grand holiday adventure as Wendy and her brothers accompany Peter back to Neverland to share the story of Scrooge and teach the Lost Boys the traditions of Christmas. But if you think this sounds like a merry little celebration, well, to paraphrase Ebenezer, “bah humbug!” For while the ever-jealous Tinkerbell sulks at Wendy’s presence, wicked Captain Hook and his zany band of pirates concoct an evil scheme to sabotage the children’s festivities. Now, it’s up to Peter Pan, the Lost Boys, the Darlings, and a comical, Dickens-inspired reenactment to show Hook the error of his ways and ultimately save Christmas in Neverland.

Come along on this grand holiday adventure as Wendy and her brothers accompany Peter back to Neverland to share the story of Scrooge and teach the Lost Boys the traditions of Christmas. But if you think this sounds like a merry little celebration, well, to paraphrase Ebenezer, “bah humbug!” For while the ever-jealous Tinkerbell sulks at Wendy’s presence, wicked Captain Hook and his zany band of pirates concoct an evil scheme to sabotage the children’s festivities. Now, it’s up to Peter Pan, the Lost Boys, the Darlings, and a comical, Dickens-inspired reenactment to show Hook the error of his ways and ultimately save Christmas in Neverland.
