The Christmas Story will be celebrated in Spanish and English at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Elizabethton at the 11 a.m. service Sunday.
“We are excited that our children and young people will be leading the Congregation in the telling of Jesus’ birth at Christmas, in Spanish and English, from the Holy Bible,” said Timothy Holder, Priest and Pastor. “This is a first for us, and probably for Carter County.”
Services will be followed by a visit from Santa Claus with gifts for all children and a Christmas Feast in St. Thomas’ Sicos Parish Hall.
The Parish’s Annual Midnight Mass will be celebrated Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, at 11 p.m.
“A wonderful host of local singers, artists, and instrumentalists from Episcopal/Anglican and Appalachian Traditions will bless with music and Christ’s birth in Bethlehem will be proclaimed as we sing, out to the streets, ‘Go Tell It on the Mountain’ led by Loretta Bowers and Minister Teresa Bowers Parker of Elizabethton,” announced Father Holder.
The public is invited to attend both services.
