Children's Christmas Program
"Light of the World", a musical composed by Mark Patterson, combines original songs and familiar carols from around the world to tell the Christmas story. Through narration, drama, and song, children share how Jesus came to be the "Light of the World" over 2000 years ago. The narration begins with the story of creation, turns to the prophetic words of Isaiah, and then recounts the events of Jesus' birth. Throughout the musical, a single burning candle symbolizes the light of Christ. This light is to be shared with the congregation at the close of the musical with an invitation to "take the light" out into the world.
