Our church tried something a little different for the Christmas program this year. Instead of a typical Christmas program, they did it ‘dinner theater’ style. The chairs were removed from the worship center, and they set up the room with tables that were beautifully decorated for Christmas.
The adult choir and drama part of the program was called “The Hope Of Christmas”. During the drama, there is a scene at a sidewalk café. As the actors were eating sandwiches at the café, the audience in our church also received a plate of croissants with chicken salad, grapes, and potato chips.
The children’s choir tied into the adult drama, and the children performed a drama called “Angels Aware”. Because the dinner-theater seating limited the available seating, they did the performance two nights in a row.
Alex has finally come out of his shell enough to perform on stage with the group. He was offered a chance to do a small solo, but he couldn’t work up the courage for that…which is more than okay! We’re just so proud of his willingness to sing and do the motions with the group!
Here are the pictures from the night…if you missed the video posts, there are links at the bottom of this post.

Jensyn was jealous of Alex’s picture on the stage,
so she asked for one too
(The pictures were taken on the first night; I took the video on the second night. So you may notice that Alex is standing in different places or holding different signs if you are comparing the photos/video.)
