PERRYVILLE - Members of Perryville United Methodist Church will celebrate the birth of Christ a little early this year by going on a pilgrimage through town to each of the six local churches, with candles and flashlights in hand.
Starting at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 12 at First Baptist, parishioners from the Perryville churches, in addition to community members, will participate in the Perryville Christmas Pilgrimage, "A Walk Through Time."
"We start at First Baptist, that is the proclamation, then it goes from scene to scene, and each church has a different scene," said Raymond Kilby, minister of music at Perryville Baptist Church.
From the proclamation of Christ's birth at First Baptist, the candlelit group will travel to St. Mary's Catholic Church to hear about no room at the inn. The route will continue to Perryville Christian Church for the flight into Egypt, then to Perryville Presbyterian Church for the story of the shepherds.
