You Can't Keep Jesus In The Nativity Scene
You Can't Keep Jesus In The Nativity Scene is an exciting and inspirational Christmas pageant for congregations of any size. Two main characters (Ms. Arranger and Mr. Lost N. Foundit) converse about Jesus and where he can be found as various groups of children sing the message of the Christmas story. The characters (and the audience) come to the realization that Jesus is a real, living presence, not just a figurine in a nativity scene. Best of all, this is a practical, ready-to-use program that comes with a complete order of service and leader's aids.
