Cricket County Christmas Carol Play

Join us for dinner and a fun new take on “A Christmas Carol” this December.

Date: Friday, Dec 5th and Saturday, Dec 6th
Time: Dinner at 6:30PM and Play at 7:30PM

Hillbillies past, present and future take the stage in this version of the classic tale. Entrepreneur Mimi is the proud owner of a dress shop. Problem is, the more money she makes, the more money she wants. Greed prompts her to spend Christmas Eve at home alone, counting her day’s take instead of celebrating with her country cousins. At midnight Glenda Mae and Brenda Mae appear as the Spirits of Christmas Past. Then Fester with his ever-present axe shows up as the Spirit of Christmas Present. Finally Elkin draped in a long, black robe (the Spirit of Christmas Yet to Come) reveals to Mimi what her selfish future holds – and it ain’t pretty. Materialistic Mimi wakes from her dream, wondering what in the Dickens is going on. She actually shares the gifts she’d bought for herself – a true Christmas miracle!

Galactic Blast, Summer 2014

Our kids soared to the stars this summer at LBC in Galactic Blast, our 2014 VBS.


The main theme for this year was, “God Loves Us, So Love Each Other!”

In our Bible story, we learned about the lame man in Capernaum who sought out Jesus as soon as he learned Jesus had arrived in town. His faith was so great, that Jesus not only forgave his sins, but healed him of his paralysis.

Students learned about how Jesus can heal any wound because God’s love is out of this world. They got to share God’s love by making birthday bags and putting together care packages for Raleigh’s underprivileged families and those who had less than they did.

Everyone had a terrific time and we’re glad to know how good it feels to love each other. See you next year!
