“Home(less) For The Holidays” will be presented at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 16, at Second Baptist Church — a rescheduling of the Sunday, Dec. 9 show that was cancelled due to inclement weather. Admission is free, but donations for area rescue ministries are greatly appreciated. Items needed are travel-sized toiletries, deodorant, and new men’s/women’s underwear and socks. Presented by the Second Baptist Church Worship Ministry, it is a retelling of sorts, of the birth of Christ.— Photos by Ken Leinart
