Sunday, December 16, will be an exciting day at Hope United Church of Christ, 150 9th Avenue, Hiawatha, IA, as our children and youth present their annual Christmas program, beginning at 10:30 a.m.

This year’s program, Bethlehem Road, features four narrators who encounter three unlikely characters – a sheep, a donkey and a camel, who share their tales about the journey to Bethlehem with Mary and Joseph. These characters also tell about their experience as they witness the coming of Jesus into the world.

Complete with an angel who declares the good news, to a sheep that is so “glaaaad” to have been at the stable, to four Wise Guys who will come from afar, this program is sure to make you smile and to bring joy into your heart.

With carols and songs that might bring fond memories and a solo by Claude, the camel, there is plenty of wonderful music to be shared.

Please come and join us for this most special day at Hope United Church of Christ.
