Shepherds and Kings
Date: Friday, December 08, 2017 (Event Views: 1,213)

Liberty Baptist Drama Team Presents: Shepherds and Kings!
FRIDAY NIGHT AT 7:00
Live Christmas Music!

Event is Free! Bring the entire family!

It's Christmas and city slicker Gerald King is trying to find a way to bring his family closer together. They have drifted apart due to their daily routines: Gerald with his job; Alice, her meetings; and the kids – well, they’re teenagers (say no more). They have embarked on a trip to the mountains to get their very own Christmas tree. However, they get lost and have to be rescued by the Shepherds, an extended mountain family. The Shepherds mistake them as being down on their luck and welcome them into their home and their hearts. As relationships develop, the Kings and the Shepherds examine the Christmas story and discover a new perspective on the familiar scripture: a hidden truth that shows the Christ Child in a new light for both the Shepherds and the Kings.

Shepherds and Kings
Date: Sunday, December 10, 2017 (Event Views: 1,260)

Liberty Baptist Drama Team Presents: Shepherds and Kings!
SUNDAY AFTERNOON AT 5:00
Live Christmas Music!
This is a make up date for Saturday's performance!
Event is Free! Bring the entire family!

It's Christmas and city slicker Gerald King is trying to find a way to bring his family closer together. They have drifted apart due to their daily routines: Gerald with his job; Alice, her meetings; and the kids – well, they’re teenagers (say no more). They have embarked on a trip to the mountains to get their very own Christmas tree. However, they get lost and have to be rescued by the Shepherds, an extended mountain family. The Shepherds mistake them as being down on their luck and welcome them into their home and their hearts. As relationships develop, the Kings and the Shepherds examine the Christmas story and discover a new perspective on the familiar scripture: a hidden truth that shows the Christ Child in a new light for both the Shepherds and the Kings.
