La Posada
Dec 20 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
La Posada @ Fellowship Hall

Join us for a Mexican “Posada” at Bethlehem at 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 20, in Fellowship Hall.

Our Lutheran brothers and sisters from St. Andrew in West Chicago will bring this traditional Mexican experience to us.

Posada means “inn” in Spanish, and this celebration symbolizes Mary and Joseph’s long, frustrating search for a place to stay where Jesus could be born. Participants re-enact this story through song. Once Mary and Joseph are welcomed in, the service continues with Scripture, a brief homily, prayers and more songs. After the service, everyone is invited for refreshments, a piñata, fellowship and more Christmas music.

Posadas are held the nine nights before Christmas eve, and we are fortunate to have one of them here! We are invited to bring and serve refreshments.

Please fill out the form if you are able to help Ingrid Nelson plan and decorate for this event or provide refreshments.  It would be helpful  in planning if you could indicate your possible attendance, but reservations are NOT required — we want everyone to feel welcome to take part in this wonderful event.
