Upcoming Live Animal Christmas Play 2016!

It's that time of year again! The time when our days all run into each other and we transport ourselves into another time to sew, build, sing, act, record, + bring to life the most beautiful story all time...the story of JESUS.

The Live Animal Christmas Play is a ministry of our church, Marion Avenue Baptist. Every year our church family joins together to put on this drama. It is one of our highlights of the year and an amazing gift God has given to grow the relationships of the church family. Working together so hard, hours upon hours, for investment in the Kingdom of God, is so incredible! 

The public is invited! That would be YOU! And your friends + family! No tickets are needed and no reservations necessary. Every year several thousand join us and watch the show as we celebrate, through drama, the true reason for the season! 

Our 2016 Showtimes are 
Saturday, December 10th, @ 11am + 5pm, 
Sunday, December 11th, at 11am + 5pm. 

{We also have a special reserved showing for our bus ministry outreach on Friday night, and two private showings on Saturday + Sunday, at 2pm each day, that are only for reserved group seating of 20 or more. Note: if you are interested in bringing a group, please contact for reservations for one of those reserved group showings!}

Just make sure you come early! (as in, 30-45 minutes early!) to ensure that you get a good seat! We often have to turn people away and we'd hate for that to be you! So make sure to arrive in good time!

Please call the church office with any questions! (phone number at the end of the video commercial above)

We can't wait to see you there! We love meeting some of our blog readers every year at the play. You might have to look a little harder to pick out our faces-we look a little different on play weekend than we do here on the blog. =) Dad has a full beard, Mitch will be in black catching chickens + assisting with running the fog machines, Allison will be flying from the ceiling in full angel costume, and Elizabeth will be the miniature Mary...just to give you a few hints! =)

It's the most wonderful time of the year!
