(Grades 3 & up, 20 Minutes) Turn back the clock to a time long before the first Christmas and hear the joyous stories of old. Watch with amazement as the old, childless couple, Zechariah and Elizabeth, are blessed with the birth of their son, John. Gaze in wonder as Mary receives the news that she is chosen to carry God's Son into the world. And look with tenderness upon Jesus, the Messiah... born in a humble cattle stall in Bethlehem.
Both charming and humorous, 'Twas the Year Before Christmas is the perfect choice for church children's choirs, Christian schools or Sunday schools.
