Bethany celebrated the story of the birth of Jesus with a traditional Christmas Pageant, which included all the traditional characters with speaking and non-speaking parts, expertly and genuinely portrayed by our Bethany kids, youth, families, and friends. Many thanks to the all who shared their talents and cuteness to bring joy to the hearts of the congregation, and to the Bethany congregation for their warm and generous willingness to be transported back into the story of our Savior's birth. Joy to the world!! This beautiful baby child was born for us!! May our lives be a reflection of the love that entered the world with his birth.
