Christmas Pageant

By Wanda Harding

Yancey County

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Homes are decked with twinkling lights, and lighted trees are covered with tinsel and  ornaments. Carols fill the air as busy shoppers crowd the malls searching for that perfect gift. Children are filled with wonder as they dream of special toys they hope to find under the tree on Christmas morning.

But the reason for the celebration should fill ALL our hearts with wonder. Join us at West Burnsville Baptist Church as we present the Eighteenth Annual Christmas Pageant, “The Wonder of His Love.” The pageant opens on Thursday, November 29 at 7 PM and continues on Friday and Saturday, also at 7 PM, closing on Sunday at 3 PM. We begin with a concert of joyous Christmas carols and continue with a musical drama of the life of Christ. Thrill to the proclamation of the angels that the Prince of Heaven is born! Marvel as the blind see, the lame walk, and sinners are forgiven as the crowds reach out to Jesus. Mourn with Mary and the disciples as Jesus is crucified and rejoice with them as they discover that He is risen! The pageant ends with the promise of life everlasting to all who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.

West Burnsville Baptist Church is located one mile west of Burnsville town square on West Burnsville Church Road just off US Highway 19 E.
