We’re all familiar with the songs of the Season . . . “Away in the Manger”, “O Little Town of Bethlehem” or “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”, to name a few, but is Christ’s story alive to your family and a part of your Holiday celebrations?
On December 18th from 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., as a gift to the community, we invite you and your family to join us, free of charge, under the blanket of the night sky for a journey back in time. You will walk with a Shepherd Guide, following the star of Bethlehem and visit five live scenes that tell the story of Jesus’ birth.
You will visit the manger–see the live animals; hear how the angels and shepherds joyously spread the word about Jesus’ birth; see the delight of the Wise Men presenting their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh and, share in the joy of the Christmas Story as told by our Grandparents.
Finally, the Family Life Center will be filled with familiar sounds of the Christmas music we all love and enjoy, complimentary hot chocolate and cookies; free craft activities for the children and an opportunity to reflect on the true meaning of Christmas with your friends and family.
The Live Nativity will be from 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, December 18, 2011 at Cedarville UMC, 1092 Laurelwood Road, Pottstown, PA. This is an outside event, so please dress accordingly. Parking is free and the event is handicapped accessible. For directions or more information you may go to our website at www.cedarvilleumc.org or call the church office at (610) 326-4173.
