"Let Him In" Christmas Program--December RS Meeting


Wow! This December meeting was incredible!

We combined with our Temple 1st ward and Spanish Branch sisters, and also encouraged everyone to bring a friend.


We had over 120 people and the Spirit of Christmas was certainly there!



It took a lot of effort to set up everything. We had the place settings ready and plenty of room for everyone to gather. 



The cultural hall 

The food table and dessert table in the overflow. 
We asked sisters to bring soups, bread, salad and dessert.

Setting up the front nativity display.


Gorgeous nativity on the front stage.

Little baby Jesus welcoming sisters in the door.





Nativities displayed as centerpieces. 


We also set up a children's room in the primary for those who needed child care. 



There were lots of cute kids excited about Christmas!

Then it was time to begin!!

As the sisters arrived we welcomed them, and invited everyone to find a seat.

We dismissed tables a few at a time to enjoy the AMAZING food.

All of the sisters brought their best soups to share, and everyone was raving about the choices! 


Lots of time to talk and visit! 


Then it was time to start our lovely program.

It was full of music from "The Forgotten Carols" and highlighted each member of the nativity.
In between musical numbers, we had lovely narration from the Bible.

 

The program was lovely and certainly brought the Spirit.

There was a beautiful selection of numbers, with a powerful song "Let Him In" sung 
from the innkeeper's perspective.

We also ended the program with the beautiful video montage of the nativity.






After the program everyone was invited to take a "Let Him In" necklace and charm from our Christmas tree.

These gifts are amazing, and everyone felt special.

The pendants were engraved by this lady, and they turned out so well!







Throughout the night and after the program, everyone was welcomed into this glorious sanctuary.

It was a nativity display full of gorgeous collections from all over!!



















Thanks to all who helped make this night so amazing!!!



For those who have requested a copy of the script, here it is in image form. 

I suggest copy-pasting the script into a Word doc or other platform.

  22. Thank you for your interest in our program. I have emailed you all a copy. As for the songs, they were all sung by women in the ward. The sheet music came from "The Forgotten Carols" I believe. Thanks for your patience.
