God didn’t stay way off in Heaven, but came down to live among us. John 1:14 says, “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” The best part of Christmas is not the presents we receive, but the presence of God with us. Christmas means that God loved us so much he came to live with us, and to die for us, so that He can live in us and we can live forever with Him.
In the GBSC 2016 Christmas musical production, “Immanuel: Christ in Me,” we hope that you will join us in celebrating Immanuel, God in flesh, who came as a baby in the manger, a boy and a man. He fulfilled prophecy, to later die, as planned before the foundation of the earth, so that God could forever be - “with us.” Immanuel’s birth may have been announced to Mary, Joseph and a handful of shepherds, over 2,000 years ago, and his life witnessed by others, but we too can share in His coming. Together, we will see glimpses of His abiding presence and acknowledge that Immanuel came and has come throughout history - He has come for all.
“Immanuel: Christ in Me,” is produced by the Division of Music and will be staged in the Adcock Chapel on December 9 (7:30PM), 10 (3:30PM), and 11 (6:00PM). Festive prelude music will begin sixty minutes prior each performance. A combined choir, orchestra, and cast of actors come together in the production.
