Conference Room Art Shows

Nassau’s Conference Room is transformed each month into an art gallery by curator and church member Sue Rodgers. Artists from our own congregation, from the broader Princeton community, and beyond share their work with us from October through May.

Drama

Chancel Drama

In August, children, youth, and adults work together to prepare and present biblical musicals that serve as centerpieces to a worship service.

In 2019:

Children and Youth, rising grade three through high school are invited to take part in the staging of the gospel with energetic storytelling, singing, costumes, set and props! We will gather each afternoon August 4 – 9, 12:30 – 4:30 pm, to prepare a musical production which will then be offered in Worship on Sunday morning, August 11, 2019 at 10 am. Each afternoon offers Bible study, music and staging rehearsal, and a mission focus. Auditions take place mid-May, with full dress rehearsal on Friday evening, 6 – 8 pm.  Join us – we have a role for you!
