Martin Luther Lutheran Church hosted the traditional Sunday School Christmas Eve program on Tuesday, December 24 at 5:30 p.m.

Pastor Ken Tubbesing welcomed the many visitors and the children and young adults presented the play which was called “The Christmas County Spelling Bee”.  Many scholars believe that there are over 700 different names and titles given to Jesus in Scripture.  Some of these names were included the Spelling Bee competition presented in the play culminating with a Christmas Pageant, where we worshiped our Savior for who He is!  Those who heard could come to a deeper understanding of what a truly wonderful gift God sent us in a manger bed 2000 years ago.
