Christmas Play and Jesus Birthday Party, Dec. 22 at 6 PM - Report

We thank everyone who helped make this event so much fun, and nourishing for our souls and bodies. We had a good turn out, and the children did a good job. We also had plenty of good food to eat afterwards as we celebrated the birthday of Jesus. We offer special thanks to our special guest, who spent time with the youngsters as they told him what they wanted for Christmas.

Our children are working every Sunday evening to prepare their program that will remind us once again of the true reason for this holiday season. We invite you to join us for this joyful event, and stay afterwards as we celebrate Jesus' birthday with a party. If you can, please bring a finger food or sweet to share. We will provide the cake and beverages. We expect a special visitor after the play that many of the younger children will enjoy meeting.

"In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven." (Matthew 5: 16)

Our vision is to let our light shine into the dark world so that the world may come to know The Light, which is Jesus Christ our Lord.
