Christmas Town Begins Tomorrow Evening!

Don’t miss the incredible Christmas Town outreach that begins tomorrow evening at the Creation Museum in Northern Kentucky (just a few miles west of the Cincinnati Airport). This program is offered on eight different nights. See CreationMuseum.org/christmas/ for details. Here is a copy of a news release we sent out a few days ago:

“Christmas Town” at the Creation Museum:

Celebrate the Holiday with a Live Nativity, Dramatic Actors, and a First-Century Re-Creation of Bethlehem

The Creation Museum is gearing up for another season of presenting the true meaning of Christmas through a live nativity display on the museum’s highly decorated grounds. “Christmas Town” will provide a glimpse of the amazing events surrounding the wonder of Christ’s birth through a nativity presentation, dazzling lights, and live dramas. Christmas Town has become an annual tradition for families in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky region (17,000 visitors came in 2009).

Dramatic presentations include:

  • The story of Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist, and the joy she felt when she was told she would bear a child of promise;
  • The temple guard, Hyam, whose life was transformed from shame to hope with his search for the “child born King of the Jews”; and
  • The Magi, wise men who will share how and why they followed the star.

The museum’s gardens will be transformed into a “Garden of Lights” featuring a breathtaking display of more than 60,000 Christmas lights. A first-century marketplace will make it easy to gather last-minute Christmas gifts and souvenirs, from oil lamps and pottery to handmade scarves, hats, toys, and baskets.

In addition, the museum’s acclaimed planetarium will present its special program, “The Christmas Star,” about the mysterious star in the east that heralded the birth of Jesus and guided the wise men to Him. Next door, “Noah’s Café” will serve beverages and snacks.

“Christmas Town” is open 6–8 p.m. ET, Dec. 10, 11, 17, 18, 27, 28, 31 and Jan. 1, and all outdoor events (except for the camel rides) are free and open to the public. More information about these special Christmas events, plus details on purchasing tickets for the planetarium and the Creation Museum, can be found at http://www.creationmuseum.org or by calling (888) 582-4253. The museum itself will be open free on Christmas Eve, Dec. 24, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., as a Christmas gift and a “thank you” to the community for another great year at the museum.

Answers in Genesis is a biblical apologetics ministry which conducts more than 250 teaching meetings each year, hosts an award-winning website, and produces the Answers radio program heard on more than 600 stations throughout the world. It is the parent ministry of the high-tech Creation Museum which opened to international acclaim on Memorial Day 2007, and has attracted more than 1.2 million visitors since then. For more information, see http://www.creationmuseumnews.com. AiG is also designing the Ark Encounter, featuring a full-scale Noah’s Ark (and other attractions) that will be built to full biblical dimensions and out of wood, planned to open in Northern Kentucky in 2014.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
