Enter the Holy Stable at This Year's Christmas Concert

The Bethel College music department will present this year’s Christmas concert, “Enter the Holy Stable” on Friday, Dec. 3 at 7:30 p.m. and also on Saturday, Dec. 4 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. in the Everest-Rohrer Chapel/Fine Arts Center Auditorium.

This year’s show will feature the Concert Choir, Women’s Chorale, The Collegians, Voices of Triumph and Chamber Orchestra. The theme centers on the holy stable where Christ was born.

“There is something special about the Savior of the world coming by way of a virgin into a cradle in a stable,” says Director Bob Ham. “His innocence, his purity, his majesty, his holiness, his grace wrapped in swaddling cloths is almost beyond our ability to comprehend. We tune our hearts to feel his call to come and worship Him, thereby being reminded to enter the holy stable. Through music we will lift our instruments and voices to proclaim this Child come to us.” 

Adult admission is $8 and $7 for students and seniors. Individual tickets can be purchased through the ticket office at 574.807.7080. The Dec. 4 performance at 7:30 p.m. will be interpreted for the d/Deaf community.
