Many people will be needed to help construct our backyard Bethlehem. Construction will take place on all the weekends in November, so look for more information about how you and your family can help build the setting for The Living Christmas Story. This is a BIG job but also a BIG BLESSING for the thousands of people who drive through each year and for our church members who work together to make the birth of our Savior come to life. There is a place and job for EVERYONE!
