ABC’s “Christmas at Four Points”

Santa was not the only noteworthy Christmas figure to make an appearance at Austin Baptist Church’s “Christmas at Four Points”. The Grinch, Frosty the Snowman and Mrs. Claus were part of celebration Dec. 8 and 9. The event also included the ABC sanctuary choir and orchestra, dancing toy soldiers from Christian Youth Theater, and “The Little Drummer Boy” performed by the Vandegrift drumline. The Christmas story of Jesus with Mary, Joseph, angels, shepherds and wise men was the grand finale of the event.

The Grinch even got a role at the Austin Baptist Church “Christmas at Four Points” event while Matt Gillum, minister to students and their families, and his wife Adrian were part of a skit. LINDA SHEPPARD
