‘Dinner at 7’ to tell Christmas tale

Inyokern Baptist Church will present “Dinner at 7,” a Christmas story, on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 17-18, at 7 p.m. at its 6521 Plains Ave. location in Inyokern.

“The story takes place around a tradition that the affluent Pennington family follows each Christmas Eve,” explained a castmember.

“Each family member invites a surprise guest to dinner, which, as the mother explains ‘proves that it’s better to give than to receive.’”

The spiritual temperature of the home has been cold in the home — for everyone except for little Rebecca. “Because of her childlike faith, she causes this particular Christmas Eve to reawaken the real meaning of Christmas in the hearts of her family.”

The public is invited to attend this heartwarming presentation. Cookies will be served after the show.

Admission is free.
