Nativity Play 'Stories of the Saviour'   -  18 December 2016

The St. Mungo' s presentation of the age old story of the Nativity formed the main part of the service on Sunday 18th. A seasonal service with a different twist created by the Sunday School teachers, supported by the members of your church.

Titled 'Stories of the Saviour' our tale begins before the New Testament stories, in fact as all good stories do, at the beginning!

Our resident scientists, members Christine  Jackson and Sandy Robertson took up the story, rolling back time to the 'creation', when God made the world. 

Bill Webster continued  with John 1:1-4 , "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was light to all mankind. " when humans appeared they were full of loving forgiveness and truth.

Time to exercise our singing, led by a video explaining the '7 days of creation'.

We continued with the Adam & Eve story, hearing how God formed Adam, then Eve from Adam's rib. All was perfect until the serpent encouraged Eve to eat the fruit from the forbidden tree, and to give some to Adam. It all went downhill after that!
We heard about the wickedness of man, and how the Lord was sorry that He had made man on the earth, how it broke His heart, saying, “I will wipe this human race I have created from the face of the earth.

We heard how God spoke to Noah about the forthcoming flood and to save two of every species he had created, but only 8 people were saved..

We enjoyed a video of the 'Arky Arky song'  before introducing and hearing about Abraham. We continued with the hymn 'Trust and Obey' .

Jesus came from the blood line of Abraham, who was Jesus' great, great, great, great, great, really great grandpa. But they say Jesus also came from David, so we heard about him, using a video 'Only a Boy Named David.'

We moved along in our story to Mary being visited by Gabriel, Joseph by the angel, the journey to Bethlehem for the census, and the birth in the stable.

We sang 'Silent Night' and the angels visiting the shepherds, before their journey to see the new born baby Jesus. This led us into the hymn 'Joy to the World'.

Finally we heard the story of Simeon and Anna, before being left with the thought 'What's your story' of the saviour?
