This holiday season the Music and Arts Department of Rivermont Avenue Baptist Church proudly presents “All on a Christmas Day.” This full stage, Broadway style musical comedy is a journey of faith that will stir your heart. “All on a Christmas Day” is a tapestry of an average man’s life. Follow Rufus Miller, who sees himself as an average Joe, in an average world, who wants to be something more than… well, average. Follow Rufus through years of floundering, blundering and failing, until he finally gets out of God’s way and discovers the important things that God has in store for him. There is a little bit of Rufus in every one, so join the journey in exploring the funny moments in an average man’s life. Opening night will be Friday, December 16th, 2005 at 7pm.
