Christmas services planned

“For unto us a child is born…” Local churches are re-telling the Biblical story of a divine child being born in Bethlehem 2,000 years ago. Tabitha Munson has the honor of portraying Mary in a Tracy Lutheran Sunday School program. Ryann Johnson, daughter of Summer and Jared Johnson, was cast in the role of Baby Jesus. Mary Christian helped place Mary’s head scarf. See Page 10 for more about the program.
