This morning, the children put on their costumes and photos were taken for a slide show which will go along with the performance.
As the wise men continued on their long journey to find the king, they came to Jerusalem, where they stopped to ask King Herod where they could find the young king. Herod called together his chief priests and teachers of the law and asked them where Christ was to be born.
"In Bethlehem of Judea," they told him. Explaining the ancient prophecy, the priests reminded Herod that long ago it was written:
But you Bethlehem, in the land of Judea, are by no means least among the rulers of Judea; for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel.

The Christmas Program will be held on a Sunday evening later this month. I'm sure I will have additional photos to share afterward! :)
