THANK YOU! The Christmas Story came alive and God was glorified thanks to all of your hard work and love that you poured into the Live Nativity. It was an all church family effort, and no small blessing was the joy of getting to know each other better. Almost 400 cars went through the Drive-Thru, and over 1,100 visitors at the Walk-Thru, meant that over 2,000 people experienced a Night In Bethlehem, along with over 2,000 pounds of food and just over  $2,000 in cash donations, went to the Fundy Interchurch Food Bank. Vehicles heard a gospel-centered overview of Christmas, and also received a gospel Christmas ornament (thanks to the WILD ladies) and candy canes. To our Nativity Team - Pastor Paul, Ron and Linda Wright, Rick Wood, Ethel Nickelson, Sharon Fowler, Olivia Bast, Pam Dimock and Katrina Salmon, and the 200 plus amazing volunteers - a heartfelt thank you!
