Long Lake Lutheran Church in Isanti presented a Live Nativity: “One Night in Bethlehem,” during several performances held Saturday, Dec. 10.
Guests were transformed into the town of Bethlehem and met the angel Gabriel; Mary and Joseph; the innkeeper’s wife, the shepherd’s and the wisemen.
They were also able to smell the straw, and see and visit with the live animals. They saw the beautiful baby Jesus and came away with the true meaning of Christmas in their hearts.
After their visit to Bethlehem, guests joined in the Fellowship Hall for a chili and soup supper. Free will donations were accepted and were used to help The Refuge and the Crisis Nursery. WELCA items were also for sale with proceeds going to Christmas Mission projects. Long Lake Lutheran Church can be reached at 763-444-5315.
