And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.
OR
In the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the east came to Jerusalem, saying, “Where is he who has been born king of the Jews?

First Baptist Orlando Creative Arts Ministry

[03/30/17]   “Let me tell you a story…”

The Light: The Story of Our Christ was first presented Easter 1986. Under the direction of Wayne Johnson and Ragan Vandergriff, it became a powerful presentation that represented The Truth of the promises and gospel of Jesus Christ. With participants numbering over 600, The Light had a tremendous impact, not just on the thousands of people who saw it, but on all the cast and crew who were involved.

1997 was the last year The Light was presented at First Orlando. A lot has changed since then, but the power of this story has not. We believe Jesus still has the power to save all who believe in Him. That’s why it’s our desire to see The Light shine again.

On April 13 and 14, we want to do more than just look back. We want to look forward to the future. It is our desire to continue this presentation for as long as God allows. We know this humble concert version does not match the grandeur of The Light in it’s final days, but we also know it didn’t get that way overnight. Men and women volunteered time and invested resources to make The Light what it was. We are praying that God will do this again for a new generation.

When you walk into the room on April 13 and 14, please know that our cast is praying for you. We're praying this presentation will have an impact on you personally, not just today, but for all eternity. Please come and celebrate with us the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
