Pastor Mike Worf said "As Christmas becomes more and more worldly, Christ is taken from Christmas every day." The pastor said that is why The Victory Baptist Church at Grantsville decided to remind the community that if it hadn't been for the "birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, there would be no reason for the season." He said it is the Christmas Gift that changed the world.

Parishioners of the church portrayed several different scenes from the Christmas story for folks who drove their cars through the church parking lot. It was an impressive sight, including live animals.

"The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork. Day unto day utters speech, and night unto night reveals knowledge. There is no speech nor language where their voice is not heard. Their line has gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world." (Psalm 19:1-4)

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) "The angel of the Lord appeared to them and the glory of God shone 'round them." (Luke 2:9)

"...The star which they had seen in the East went before them, till it came and stood over where the young Child was. When they [the Wise Men] saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy. And when they had come into the house, they saw the young Child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh." (Matthew 2:9-11)

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning." (James 1:17)

"Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." (John 14:27)

"Grace to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen." (Galatians 1:3-5)
