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!  Please come take part in this wonderful event.
