Thanksgiving and Advent at BPC
Please join us for our annual Carol Sing and Living Nativity at BPC, Monday, December 23, 2019 at 6 p.m.
The annual Living Nativity has been a part of BPC's Christmas celebration for over 30 years and is our single largest outreach event to the community. We begin with a carol sing and handbell ring and continue with a theatrical presentation of the Nativity story complete with Mary, Joseph, Wisemen, shepherds and angels and of course baby Jesus! We even have animals, including the humble donkey! Afterwards come inside for hot chocolate and cookies in the Fellowship Hall. Please note the start time, mark your calendars and join us for this cherished tradition. It happens rain or shine and all are welcome.
Calling all angels and shepherds!! Shepherds can be all ages, male and female, plus a few adults involved since the they gather around a campfire. The angel choir can be girls or boys through middle school. Angels should be ready to sing some simple carols, Helpers are also needed that afternoon to help set up sound and snacks and other small tasks. In the evening we need help to assist with costumes and to pass out snacks to the cast. If you would like to be a part of this fun joyous event contact organizer, Charlene Isham ecisham@comcast. or 603-401-2052
Helpers are needed to set up our Living Nativity stable after church on Sunday, December 22nd right after worship. It takes no more than an hour, but strong arms and screw guns are needed. Can't help put the stable up? That's okay, we need to take it down too right after the Living Nativity on the 23rd. it is the same process but in reverse, takes no more than an hour and strong arms are needed. Contact Matt Bader to sign up!
We need help with our sound system this year---Are you willing? See above to contact Charlene
