To Whom it may concern,
Our church is doing a Christmas Musical on Sunday, December 16 @ 10:15 am
The musical is entitled
STRAIGHT OUTTA BETHLEHEM
a CHRISTMAS MUSICAL BY
CHRISTY & DANIEL SEMSEN
AND A PRODUCTION OF Word Music
The Christmas musical is about the savior coming to the world through the eyes of orphans. Many of these orphans felt safe and secure in who they were and believed in the coming Messiah. But one of the orphans, saw himself as alone in the world, afraid, depressed, and rejected. Through the encouragement of his surrounding Inn-mates, the Good News from the Angels, and a special encounter with the baby Jesus, he discovers the real meaning of Christmas and a Father God that knows, cares, and loves him!
I am so blessed to be able to work with this cast, crew, and church family.
May you all have a blessed CHRISTmas and New Year!
“I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.”
