Follow His Star Christmas Program

April 01, 2011 | Haleigh Haight

For the past four years, the Grants Pass (Ore.) Seventh-day Adventist School has opened its doors to the community every December to act out the biblical Christmas story. On Dec. 16, 2010, students and faculty guided more than 200 people through their classrooms in hopes of making the birth of Jesus come alive. Almost every student from kindergarten through eighth grade was in costume as the drama unfolded and the audience was guided through classroom scenes.

Cheri Meier, a parent of an upper-grade student, says, “It was so well rehearsed and organized!”

“I thought it was very inspiring,” comments Claudia Velasco, seventh-grade student.

A reception of hot drinks and cookies in the commons area gave members of the local churches and community an opportunity to fellowship. This Christmas tradition will be remembered in hearts and minds of those who participated and everyone who had the privilege of attending Follow His Star.
