From the Tree and Wreath Sale to the Live Nativity, it is really beginning to look a lot like Christmas here at Shiloh! In the midst of all of our hustle and bustle, we can forget to participate in the incredible events that are happening at Shiloh! These experiences help prepare us to be ready for the Birth of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Are you ready? I’m not asking if your shopping is done or you have decided when you are getting together with your friends and family for Christmas. I am asking if you are ready for Jesus to show up in your life, and not just your life, but for Jesus to show up and change the world. Here are some of the things happening at Shiloh to help get us ready:
Weekend of December 14/15
Dude You Hear What I Hear? This year’s Children’s Christmas Play is Saturday, December 14, at 5:30pm, and Sunday, December 15, at 11am. For months our kids have been readying themselves to share with us the good news of Jesus‘ birth. On Saturday, there will be a Birthday Party for Jesus following the play.
Live Nativity Do you like animals? Do your kids or grandkids? Then come out to the live nativity on Saturday, December 14, from 6pm to 9pm. Not only will you experience a live version of Jesus‘ family, but you will also have the opportunity to watch the Christmas Play or even participate in Stations of the Crib!
Stations of the Crib Created as a parallel experience to The Stations of the Cross, Stations of the Crib is an extremely powerful and prayerful way to experience the birth story of Jesus. The Stations are open on Saturday, December 14, from 1pm to 9 pm.
