BLACKFOOT â€” Members of the community are welcome to St. Bernard Catholic Church's Nativity play on Friday.
Director Donna Blackman said several of the parish's children will present the play at 5 p.m.
"There's no charge," Blackman said. "This is the children's gift to the community as we celebrate Christmas."
Blackman said the play, which features the story of the birth of Jesus Christ and many familiar hymns, will last about 30 minutes.
She said those who attend are welcome to stay for services which will follow immediately after completion of the play.
THOMAS â€” Snake River vs Blackfoot. A highly charged situation regardless of circumstances. On Wednesday night, the emotions were ratcheted up just a bit as Blackfoot took to the hardwood with their coach in the stands but not on the bench due to a controversial decision by the Blackfoot superintendent.
The Blackfoot players honored their embattled coach by wearing his name on the back of their warm ups as well as his initials on their arms.
