STAR OF BETHLEHEM
Words are insufficient to express the gratitude to all who were involved in this year’s drive-thru Nativity. It was a beautiful production, the weather cooperated, and 530 vehicles with 1540 people were in attendance along with approximately 250 participants in the scenes or working behind the scenes. Star of Bethlehem is truly a free gift and blessing to this community. Thank you, Memorial, and all who made this possible again this year.
Our Annual Love Feast will be held this Sunday, December 18th at 7:00 PM in our church sanctuary.
This special Advent worship service is where we sing Christmas Carols, listen to readings from the nativity passage, and partake of the tea and rolls included with an authentic Moravian Love Feast.
All are invited, and we hope you will join us!
If you need child care during the service, please signup using the following link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70a0545a8af28a02-love
