Thursday, Dec. 13, the Morgan special needs mutual performed the third annual, “A Very Special Nativity,” for standing room only crowds.
There were two showings and over 800 attendees. This is an annual event that takes place the second Thursday of December each year at the Milton church.
The musical was accompanied by costumed performers and the special participants reflected the real meaning of Christmas.
This group is blessed with talented and devoted leaders and advisors who have such patience with all the varied needs of the group. These leaders are the first to proclaim that they receive more blessings than the time they devote to the mutual. These young adults have touched their hearts in a monumental way.
Special thanks goes out to Cathy and Nolan Johnson and all the fantastic leaders and advisors. This event would not happen without each and every one of them.
The participants included: JD and Bill North playing Roman soldiers; Daniel Mudrow as Joseph; Jenni Smith in the role of Mary; Ryan Jarrett and Larry Turner as innkeepers; Jared Allen, Zach Baker, Gage Winn, Chad Lundgren and Josh Jensen played the part of shepherds, Vicky Sommerville, Alixe and Abbey Randall, Stephanie Dickson, Katie Carter, Baya White, Janelle Williamson, Maddie Francis, Katie Kearsely, Rachel Jarrett, Katelyn Mayhew, Kristen Wixom and Tessa Lewis were beautiful angels; David Olsen, Colton Miller and David Dougall served as the wise men.
Many of these young adults also participated in a play at Morgan High School.
