Booking New England States, Summer 2016!

We are excited to announce that we are coming to the New England states this summer, and several new provinces of Canada! On July 4-28th, 2016, we will be touring in the following areas:

Novia Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Quebec,  Maine, Massachusets, Conneticut, Vermont, Rhode Island, and New York.

Due to never having been to most of these areas previously, we don't have as many contacts for these locations. With our large blog outreach following, we thought we would check in with you, our dear readers, and see if any of you are from these areas and if so, would you be interested in hosting a concert? We would love to come and sing in your town, and get a chance to meet more of you!
Please contact us as soon as possible, as we are currently working to wrap up all concert bookings for 2016!

Inviting YOU to the Upcoming Live Animal Christmas Play!!

It is so hard to believe that it is once again THIS time of year to invite y'all to our church's annual Live Animal Christmas Play! The last few weeks have been filled with prep and rehearsals and now it is almost TIME for the real thing. Our last rehearsal was last night and now we have a few days to rest and recoperate before the upcoming weekend marathon of six full showings in 48 hours. =) 
We are so excited, and hope that many of you who are able, will take the time to join us this weekend at one of the four public showings, Saturday @ 11am + 5pm, and Sunday @ 11am + 5pm. 
For those of you who are new to the blog and our ministry within the past year and don't know what the Live Animal Christmas Play is, you can see pictures, recap, and video clips from last year, HERE! Or you can head on over to the website to read and find out more about the play.
In a nutshell, though...the Live Animal Christmas Play is a full Christmas drama that our church puts on each December. Our whole family is involved as cast + crew, along with our church family. It is a wonderful experience and a highlight of our year, for sure!

The show is free and open to the public, but every year we have to turn people away (due to packed out crowds!) so if you want to ensure a good seat PLEASE arrive at least 30 minutes early! 

We hope you will join us this weekend as we celebrate the true meaning of Christmas and share the timeless Christmas story through lights, drama, music, and live animals!

"And the angel said unto them, 
'Fear not: for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, 
which shall be to all people. 
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, 
which is Christ the Lord'. "
Luke 2:10+11
