Are you looking for a special way to bring the real Christmas story alive for your children?
In a simple, easy, free and meaningful way?
How about letting them participate in an amazing living nativity on Christmas Eve.
(With no rehearsals – just show up and participate!)
Wednesday, December 24 at 3:00 pm & 5:00 pm
…perhaps your child will be the Christmas star
(or an angel, or a shepherd, or maybe even Mary or Joseph?) this year!
The props, costumes and wonderful volunteers will be waiting at the door to the sanctuary to
help your child choose their costume…
Or sweet little angel?
The kiddos sit with their parents and then when the story telling begins,
they will be called to the front to take their place in the living nativity…..
Older kids who don’t want to wear a costume, participate in the telling of the story.
Every child attending the service is invited to participate in the retelling
of the Christmas story and create a living nativity
at the 3:00 and 5:00 worship services on Christmas Eve.
Parts will be assigned and costumes
handed out as the children enter the Sanctuary that afternoon for worship–
everyone, yes EVERYONE, who wants to participate gets a part in our play!
When we are done with the story, goodie bags will be distributed
to all the kids to remind them of the good time they had.
Besides our play, there will be plenty of carol singing, a wonderful message
and of course, a birthday cake for Jesus!
Invite your friends to come and join in a meaningful celebration of Christmas
because today’s kids really need to hear about the
real reason for the season . . . Jesus!

The Real Meaning Of Christmas
By Martha Noebel
It’s that time of year again. December has come and with it all the joys of Christmas. But what is the real meaning of Christmas? Is it the gifts under the tree, the lights in the windows, the cards in the mail, turkey dinners with family and friends, snow in the yard, stockings hanging in the living room, and shouts of “Merry Christmas” to those who pass us in the streets? Is this really Christmas?
Christmas is when we celebrate the birth of the Christ child. God sent His Son, Jesus, into the world to be born. His birth brought great joy to the world. Shepherds, wise men, and angels all shared in the excitement of knowing about this great event.
Look at Christmas in a new way this year. This is the year to invite Jesus into your heart. You will then have a “Merry Christmas.” The joy and peace you will receive will last all year as you look to God for all your needs to be met.
Jesus Is The Reason For The Season! Rejoice!
