Night in the Barn is Dec. 15-16 years ago

The annual "Night in the Barn" living nativity event by the youth group of Tabor Mennonite Church is scheduled for 6 to 8 p.m. Dec. 15-16 at the farm of Maynard Knepp and Carol Duerksen, located between Goessel and Hillsboro.

This year's come-and-go program will feature Mary's story as well as the usual menagerie of animals that make the unique event a growing tradition for hundreds of people.

Christmas carols around a bonfire, hot drinks, and sales of a new year-long devotional book also will be available.

The book, "Now It Springs Up," is co-authored by Carol Duerksen, Michele Hershberger, and Laurie Oswald Robinson.

For more information or directions to the farm, call 620-367-8432 prior to the event.
