On Friday, Dec. 6, Holy Spirit Lutheran Church will be one of the stops in Lower Township’s Day of Hospitality from 4 to 7 p.m. with—for the second time at this event — three of the Turtlesinger Inc. turtles in a Live Turtle Nativity!
Come feed one of three live turtles using a stick or a spoon, thereby giving a gift to Rocky the box turtle as baby Jesus, Gracie the tortoise as the Virgin Mary, and Big Black Bart the tortoise as Joseph. Feel free to take pictures! Also new this year: help decorate a turtle Christmas tree with turtle ornaments!
Members of the church will welcome everyone in costume as villagers of Bethlehem. The turtles will be in the warm church sanctuary decorated for Christmas — don’t miss the 10-foot decorated Christmas tree, numerous nativity displays and more. Also enjoy apple cider and homemade Christmas cookies.
