The Orange Leader

Pastor C. Ryan Chandler of Trinity Baptist Church in Orange excitedly announces a live Nativity scene at 6:30 p.m. on both Sun., Dec. 17, as well as on Mon., Dec. 18.  The Christmas event will be a brief production for the community to see a manger scene with Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, shepherds, and even live animals in front of the church, 1819 N. 16th Street.  Church members wish to give back to the community by providing a live production of the Christ child lying in a manger, surrounded by actors playing those biblically believed to have witnessed the event, according to the New Testament.

Hot chocolate, cider, and cookies will be served as the Trinity Baptist Choir sings in the background.  The public is invited to be a part of this free Christian celebration, complete with costumes and animals.

Contact Church Coordinator, Lynae Sanford, if you would like to donate costumes (most costumes lost in flood), a donkey, a camel, a cow, a sheep(s), a llama, or an alpaca for this inspirational service on Dec. 17-18 at 6:30 p.m.
