Free Christmas Game This Weekend – The Suffolk News-Herald
After another year of uncertainty, a new Christmas coin will remind people of God’s grace and true joy.
Southside Baptist Church will present its Christmas play “Foster Grace” at 6:30 pm on December 10, 11 and 12 at 917 Carolina Road.
“Foster Grace” follows the story of a newly widowed Grace who faces the possibility of closing the auto store she opened with her husband during their first marriage. This contemporary drama is something for the whole family to enjoy.
This piece is an original piece by Ernie Chenault, who has written several pieces for the Southside Baptist Church for Christmas and Easter in recent years, including “Home for Christmas”, “Plans for a King” and “Bread of Life” . The theme of this piece is undeserved grace.
“I want to show that God will grant his children undeserved grace,” said Chenault. “It is not a deserved grace, but when you do what you are supposed to do and God chooses to bless you to show his love. He never promised us happiness, but he promised us joy.
According to Chenault, the big highlight of the show is the real car that will be on stage to set the scene for the automotive workshop. Plus, actors who have performed in Southside Baptist Church plays are on stage again this Christmas, including Allison Carr, Jason Thompson, Josh Butts and Tiffany Butler.
The play will have a special youth night on December 11, but all ages are welcome. A daycare will be available for performances on Saturday and Sunday. Additionally, there will be someone doing American Sign Language at the Sunday performance. Performances are free and are expected to last approximately 90 minutes.
“It’s a very beautiful story,” said Chenault. “Bring the whole family. It will be a good time.
The play will be broadcast live on the church’s website, sbcsuffolk.org/sbc-live. It will also be available on the Southside Baptist Church Facebook page and on the Youtube channel.
