Weekend Recap of Jazz Nativity

  • We did It!!!

I can’t believe it’s over!! I look forward to this every single year and now today the wait has started all over again. Jazz Nativity is such a massive production for our church and I’m so proud of all of the hard work and energy that goes into making this masterpiece! So many volunteers give up their precious holiday time to serve and pitch in wherever they can. It’s amazing!!!!! We had so many friends come this year and I hope they come EVERY year!! In my opinion, this is the BEST way to kick off the Christmas season. Hands down! I mean, watching Elf is a close second… just kidding. This show will blow you away.

We were all over the place for Thanksgiving this year and so it’s a small miracle that this worked out! We met in downtown Richmond and everything was perfect….
