Compassion Christian Church in Savannah invites you & your family to this fun Christmas musical production “Chasing Christmas.”

The show will be 7PM Friday-Sunday, Dec. 1-3 and 8-10 @ the Worship Center @ the Compassion Christian Henderson Campus.

Chase McLane, a young, talented singer/songwriter, begrudgingly schedules a trip home from Nashville for the annual nativity at his family’s church.

When he arrives home, he realizes that this series of events may not have been a coincidence…

Tickets cost $5 and can be purchased online here and at the Resource Center or at the door.
