This year is no exception, as WBC members present the 30th Annual Living Christmas Tree, December 7, 8 and 9 at the church, located at 6097 Buffalo Gap Road.
"For thirty years, our church has done something for our community and the Big Country that would inspire hope in the hearts of people during the Christmas season," said Donny Harbers, WBC senior pastor.
A mixture of sacred and secular music, drama, narration and multimedia make up the Living Christmas Tree. More than 100 WBC members make up the cast.
For those who have not seen the presentation, the "living" part of the tree comes from the fact that choir members actually sing from the nearly 30-foot steel tree structure. Platforms at seven different levels accommodate up to 40 choir members. The structure is beautifully adorned with greenery, decorations, and more than 40,000 computer-controlled lights.
"The LCT brings our church family together," said Rick Grant, WBC associate pastor, and director of the Living Christmas Tree. "This presentation creates many opportunities for our church members to use their various gifts and abilities to the glory of God. It creates enormous excitement in our church!"
Several church members have been in every Living Christmas Tree since 1982; for some, this will be the first year to participate in this annual tradition.
This year's presentations are December 7 at 7:30 p.m., December 8 at 5 and 7:30 p.m., and December 9 at 2 p.m. Tickets for the Living Christmas Tree are free, and may be ordered by calling the church at 325.692.3206.
