The FUMC kids and adults are busy preparing a Christmas musical entitled CAMEL LOT to be presented Sunday morning, December 9th at 10:00 am and an evening performance at 5:00 pm that will take their audience on a delightful journey to the manger…by camel! The play is filled with high-energy fun, the coolest music and funny characters, but also has a Biblically rock-solid message.
In the play, Beth (played by Casey Mathis) has been practicing hard for the church Christmas pageant. Her Dad (played by Pastor Dan Harrington) who runs a car dealership thinks he is too busy with Christmas car sales to make it to the program. Exhausted from practice, with lines from Luke 2 swirling in her mind, Beth drifts off to sleep. Transported by Beth’s imagination, we all "wake up" not in her dad’s Auto Lot but instead in Bethlehem on a very special day, and in a most unusual place — the Camel Lot! It doesn’t take long, inside Beth’s topsy-turvy dream world, to encounter camel shoppers (Sydnie Norris, Del Sears, Cristy Thornton, Scot Mathis, J.T. Mathis, Mike Thomas and Joe Pete Smith), sales people (Raley Kirk, Daylon Smith, JT Moody, Gracen Shahan), shepherds (Risien Shahan, Jaycie Everett, Madison Shahan, and Addy Easterwood), wise men (Austin Smith, Wyatt Smith, JT Mathis), the Holy family (Lee, Kelly and Wiley Murray), Little Angels (Libby Mays, Emmerson Easterwood, Lyla Harrington, Jason Everett, Jackson Thornton and Taylor Wise), a lot full of camels (FUMC choir) and a very familiar story, told in a fun and refreshing new way!
Everyone is invited to the CAMEL LOT at the First United Methodist Church on December 9th to hear and celebrate the story of Christmas.
