LIVE NATIVITY SCENES

Live nativity scenes will be on the front lawn this Saturday, December 11th, and Sunday, December 12th from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. Make your plans to ride down Randolph Street during these designated times and see the beautiful nativity sets reminding us of Jesus’ birth! Our prayer is that next year we will have the full experience of Star of Bethlehem once again.

Holy Communion will be offered for all to receive in a come-and-go format on Christmas Eve, 5 – 6:30 PM in the Sanctuary. Bring your family and invite a friend and make this a Christmas Eve tradition. We hope to see you and celebrate this beautiful sacrament on the Eve of Christ’s birth!
