Back to the Manger

Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

The church kids discover the janitor's time machine and are suddenly back in 1978, where people are practicing for the church's annual caroling outreach. Then they are whisked off to other decades in the 20th century. Jackson, a cool kid of 2018 who is very unenthused about going to this year's event, suddenly meets his grandma when she was ten years old. In 1944, he meets Hank Olsen, a poor kid whose mother is picking up a food basket provided by the church. Hank asks Jackson to play a game of marbles. They are both taken back to the time when Jesus was a babe in a manger. As the kids look on, Hank is very moved; he gives his marble as a gift to Jesus. Jackson too sees God's sacrifice and his own ungratefulness.

It's when they all finally get back home that they realize that their very own Pastor Olsen was that boy Hank. Once you go back to the manger and see God's greatest gift, you are never the same.
