I Still Believe in Christmas tells the parallel story of the wise men searching for the star and a modern-day journey filled with lost hope and despair. Sometimes it's when Jesus feels so far away He is actually closest. Intertwined with inspirational Christmas music from a full orchestra and drama scenes portrayed by St. John's members, performances will be held Friday, December 8 at 7 pm, Saturday, December 9 at 3 pm and 7 pm, and Sunday, December 10 at 10 am. Admission is free and no tickets are required.
