‘The First Leon’ Christmas program

WITCHLAKE – The Christmas program “The First Leon” will be at 10:30 a.m. Dec. 22 at the First Baptist Church, Witch Lake.

In this musical, you will see the Christmas story through the eyes of Leon. Ever since he realized that his name spelled backwards is Noel, he’s felt called to tell the world the true meaning of Christmas.

But when he tries out for every role in the annual pageant, he finds that he’s the only one who doesn’t get a part.

Now Leon understands better than anyone how Mary and Joseph must have felt when they heard the words “No room” that night in Bethlehem. Without even trying to, however, Leon does uncover the true meaning of Christmas when he identifies the real star of Bethlehem.
