GLOVERSVILLE — His heart may be three sizes too small at first, but Dr. Seuss’s Grinch will open his ticker to the true meaning of Christmas when North Main Street United Methodist Church, 316 N. Main St., stages “How the Grinch Found Christ in Christmas” at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday.

The audience-participation program, produced by the church’s sunday school, features a full range of sets and Seussian costumes and will call upon audience members to play the local inhabitants of Whoville.

Participants are asked the wear “ugly Christmas sweaters” for their roles as the “Whos.” Approximately 20 “Who” hats designed by local elementary school children also will be distributed for the performance.

The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments and a visit from Santa Claus will follow the program in the church’s Fellowship Hall.

North Main Street offers sunday school weekly during the school year and hosts several events for children and families throughout the year, including afterschool art workshops, summer day camps, an Easter egg hunt, a Harvest Festival and a chili cook-off, among other outreach programs. The church also operates a food pantry and Monday free lunch program.
