The Christmas Mystery

DURING ADVENT, WE INVITE YOU TO WORSHIP WITH US each Sunday morning at 8:45 a.m. in the Sanctuary and take a wonderful pilgrimage to Bethlehem!  Our children and youth are taking us on a magnificent journey back in time to the birth of Jesus.  Marie Miller has adapted author Jostein Gaarder's beautiful book THE CHRISTMAS MYSTERY in a series of dramatic creations that will  take us from November 22 to our FAMILY SERVICE on Christmas Eve at 4:00 p.m. Our children are taking the characters of angels, shepherds, sheep, sojourners and all those drawn to the holy birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. Marie Miller is the creative genius behind the whole production, Lori Sivick is the Director, Bill Bethmann built the sets, Monika Stefany has painted a beautiful "magical" Advent calendar, Deb Philpotts and Ina Nechita are in charge of costumes, and props are coming from everywhere!  Mark Lang is in charge of the sound and amplification, Evan Putnam has created slides that will be projected on the walls of the Sanctuary, and Beverly Bailey is an invaluable rehearsal assistant!  This is a wonderful blessing to our Advent Season of holiness...join us for THE CHRISTMAS MYSTERY and discover anew the wonder that "Christ, the Babe, was born for YOU!"
