It’s the time of year when many churches have Christmas events and programs. Here are a couple you won’t want to miss:
For about 10 years, the worship team at Bellevue Baptist Church has written and produced their own Christmas productions, which have mostly been a blend of comedy and drama. This year, worship Pastor J.P. Kwok says Bellevue decided to use an already-written script and put more effort into inviting people to experience the show. (You may have noticed billboards around town or ads on Facebook promoting the show.) “Bellevue has always invested heavily in Christmas,” JP explained, “but we hope to impact a lot more people this year because the script is based on the story of the coming of Jesus as told in the Bible.”
There is a sneak peak video online, (https://www.facebook.com/BellevueChurchOwensboro?fref=nf) and by the looks of it, Awaited should be very entertaining. It is very multimedia arts driven, with video narration and tons of dance which has been choreographed by Bellevue’s worship team. The music is seamless, transitioning from one song to the next as scenes change.
Tickets are free. Show times are Dec. 12 at 7:00pm, Dec. 13 at 7:00pm, and Dec. 14 at 10:00am, 4:00pm & 7:00pm. Bellevue is located on Highway 56.
If your little ones like seeing live animals, they’ll love the Living Nativity at Cumberland Presbyterian Church. “The Greatest Gift of All” is a free, drive-thru journey back to Bethlehem presented by church members dressed as magi, angels, shepherds, and Mary & Joseph. Live sheep, donkeys, and even “Humphrey the Camel” complete the manger scene. Participants receive a free CD to accompany their trip. Experience the Living Nativity from the comfort of your car at Cumberland Presbyterian, 910 Booth Avenue, this Saturday, December 13th and Sunday, December 14th from 6:00-8:00pm.
