Barn Service Scheduled

Are you looking for a peaceful way to celebrate the Christmas season this year, far away from the traffic, the malls and the TV commercials? Everyone is warmly invited to share in the annual stable service on Wednesday evening, December 20th, 7:00 pm, at the “Happy Barn” on the Richard Taylor property, 7893 McKenna Road, rural Hollandale. — Handicapped accessible.
The simple service will feature familiar Christmas songs, and the traditional Christmas story, complete with costumed shepherds and angels, live animals, and a sweet baby in the manger. Travel to the ancient town of Bethlehem to hear the shepherds talk about the angels’ proclamation; listen to the prophets tell of signs and wonders and see the baby asleep in the manger. Experience Christ’s birth as if you were there!
Coffee, hot cider and cookies will be served following this short family service. An offering will be taken to benefit the Food Pantry.
Make this Living Nativity a part of your family’s Christmas tradition! Dress warmly!
