About 2800 people attended eight shows of a dinner theater at Cornerstone Church during the last two weeks. Members of Cornerstone Church created and performed a “JB and Linda Family Christmas” that simulated a Branson, Missouri-type variety show. The church family was invited to bring their friends who are not involved in a church to come, watch a show, and enjoy dinner together.
The program’s four variety show segments consisted of drama, singing, and dancing, but also included themes of sacrifice, redemption, forgiveness, and the true meaning of Christmas. After each segment of the show a dinner course was served which gave the audience opportunity to get to know one another and discuss the program.
An extra benefit of the dinner theater included an occasion for members of Cornerstone to get to know one another as they served together to put on the performances, served the dinners, and chatted together around the tables at the dinners.
The dinner theater was nice idea to add to the menu of Christmas outreach and fellowship events for Cornerstone.
