A Muldrow church is preparing to present its ninth annual Tour of Christmas.
Eastside Freewill Baptist Church has scheduled shows Dec. 6-8 (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) from 6:30-8:30 p.m. each night. The church is at 1302 S. Main, just north of the Interstate 40 interchange in Muldrow.
Eastside’s pastor, Anthony Williams, said nearly 120 cast members are required to put on the shows, which offer a live-action look at what a busy town of Bethlehem might have been like during the time of Jesus Christ. The cast is an “all hands on deck” team that works tirelessly to put the annual event together, Williams said.
The tour starts with a hayride that takes visitors through 12 scenes of the birth, life, crucifixion and resurrection of Christ.
“This event brings a more personal touch to the story of Christmas,” Williams said. “Every year we add something new (to the program),” so even people who have been to the show before will find something to catch their eye, he added.
“We consider (the Tour of Christmas) a gift from our church to the community,” Williams said.
