FBC 2009 Christmas Program

Well, I realize that I am alittle late in getting these on
but, better late than never. :)
Here are a few pics from our Christmas program entitled
Bethlehem Inn.

A few opening words from the pastor
and my honey

Our ladies group sang a couple of different
selections during the play

Aren't these animals so cute?
(A special thank you must be said
here to Mrs. Darlene Edwards who
made the costumes)

Cory Nelson playing his recital piece
O Come, O Come Emmanuel
He played it beautifully!

Bro Wesley and Mrs. Diane Howard sang
O Beautiful Star of Bethlehem

Here are some shepherds

The younger children sang a cute song
and had a few lines to say

Again, the ladies group
We sang O Come, O Come Emmanuel
and Tell Me the Story of Jesus

The Young Ladies group.
We were very blessed to have
Daniel and Brooklyn Sparkman
home for Chrismas break
from Pensacola Christian College.
Bro. Daniel played the piano
before the play and again at
intermission. We love having
them home. Brooklyn also
plays piano and sings so we
really put them to work when
they are home. :)

To keep things as simple as possible, we
served finger foods and dessert for our
"dinner theater".

A picture of the crowd. There was no possible
way to get a picture of the whole group.
We did have a record number in attendance
for our first event in our new
fellowship hall, approximately 125.
We were so excited and blessed
by the great turnout.

Eli, the owner of the Bethlehem Inn. Here he
is talking about the crowds in Bethlehem
and how it makes things very difficult.
(And I simply MUST insert here how
very proud we all are of Cory.You would
not believe how many lines this young
man had to memorize, and he did a GREAT
job. ~And as a side note, Cory is a very
shy and quiet young man-It is amazing how
the Lord blesses him to be able to perform
in the Christmas programs)

The servants of the owners of the Inn.
Emily is the one in the pink head scarf)

Mary and Joseph in the stable

This picture was taken before the play
during rehearsal~that is why the
younger ones are not in costume
We had a great Christmas program. Bro. Jonathan
and Mrs. Becky Snow were the directors and they
did a fantastic job. We are thankful and appreciative
of all their hard work.
We are also grateful for all those who have helped
in getting the new fellowship hall ready.
(sh...there were a few little things that weren't
quite finished...but I won't tell if you won't)
Anyway, we look forward to many, many
years of wonderful fellowship. May we always
use for His Glory and Honor.

Oh it looks like a wonderful program. Love all the costumes specially those cute little animals.

So glad it went so well. Now we have only 1 more year to prepare for the next program!!

Tammy said...

Love the idea of what you did. Might need to try it someday when we have more to participate.

Joy said...
