With the help of Cora May, cousin Luther, Uncle Yule and Granny, they learn the story of Christ’s birth and how it all happened in the country — the countryside of Bethlehem. Musical styles vary from traditional carols, some with Southern accents intertwined, to Beverly Hillbillies, to rap and more. Hearts will be entertained and touched with the message of a savior, Jesus Christ the Lord. For more information, call 667-3117.
