Christmas Play and Party - 2018 Report
We had a great turnout for this year's play and party. The Christian Life Center was full, and the children did a wonderful job with the play. Our guests also enjoyed a bountiful feast after the performance. The arrival of our special guest thrilled the little ones, too (most of them anyway!).
We thank everyone who helped with the production and the food, and everyone who came to this celebration of the birth of our Savior, Jesus. Special thanks to Tasha Haas, who produced and directed the play. Merry Christmas!
Thanks to our splendid cast for a job well done!
O boy! Santa has arrived!
We're happy to see Santa, too!
