Over 2000 years ago a woman named Mary and a man named Joseph traveled from Nazareth to Bethlehem. While there, Mary had a baby in a stable made to shelter animals. Shepherds from the field came and witnessed the events following Jesus’ birth. Jewish residents of the town of Bethlehem lived each day under Roman rule and longed for God send their promised Messiah.
O Come, Emmanuel sets the Biblical events of the Christmas story in their real time and in their real place in a unique and thought provoking way. It is designed to give your church a creative way to tell the Christmas story and involve all levels of your Sunday School ministry.
