True meaning of Christmas celebrated in Mount Hope

Published:

The Mount Hope community will come together on Friday night, Nov. 30, at 5:30 p.m. at the Mount Hope Auction Barn to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas.

The children of the community will take on costumed roles for a live Nativity at the auction barn. The Christmas Story will be told, in both English and German by members of the Mount Hope Merchants Association.

Liberated For Him and a local group, The Mount Hope Four, will sing. Food available at the Mount Hope Auction Barn restaurant will include cheeseburgers, hot dogs, soup and noodles. Freewill donations will be accepted for coffee and homemade cookies served by members of local Amish churches. Proceeds will go to assist two local families with large medical expenses.

Mount Hope Auction Barn is located on state Route 241 in Mount Hope. The live Nativity is sponsored by Mount Hope Merchants Association and the Mount Hope United Methodist Church.

Everyone is invited to come celebrate the true meaning of Christmas and see how a small community can come together and share with others who have a need.
