Hattiesburg church to host annual Christmas program

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A Hattiesburg church is continuing its tradition of sharing the Christmas story through a special musical and dramatic celebration.

19th Avenue Baptist Church is hosting the sixth annual, "Merry Christmas Hattiesburg" Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

The hour-long production features a 30-voice choir and brand new music.

The production tells the story of Jesus' birth through the eyes of the innkeeper's family.

"The choir will be singing all new music, I think that everybody will enjoy it," said Monty Bounds, pastor of 19th Ave. Baptist Church. "So, it's a totally brand new production and we're excited about presenting it to the City of Hattiesburg this year."

The first presentation is Saturday night at 7 o'clock.

It will be repeated Sunday morning at 10:30 and again Monday night at 7 o'clock.
