Sacred Arts Series continues with Journey to BethlehemThe Information
It's time to gather and plan. We invite all families wishing to take part in this years Nativity Play to come and see what we have in store. This year brings a new approach to the age old tradition of the celebration of the birth of Christ from a child's eyes. It is always a beautiful sight from the first of the sheep herd and littlest angel to the proud parents of the new born. All these God filled children working so hard to get it just right! This year we'll look inside the miracle of the story.
Each Wednesday, 5:30 - 6:00 beginning with November 4th, we will explore each aspect of the 'put together' of the play. Clinics will include script writing, costume & prop construction, the setting: including flowers, preparing of the altar, lighting & sound and of course music.
All of this preparation (and learning) will come together on the weekend of December 18-20. Friday, Dec. 18 we will experience a live Nativity (animals and all) on the point in front of the church from 6-8 p.m., Sat. Dec. 19 beginning at 9:00 we will have a run through practice of the play followed by baking and building Gingerbread Nativity, and Sunday Dec 20 the Nativity Play will take place in Harmony Service at 10:00 a.m.
All in all our hope is to have our families, especially our kids, experience this Advent and Christmas season like never before!
