Not Just Ordinary Christmas Lights
A spectacular outside synchronized light and music show is now being
constructed at Pine Forest Baptist Church. This original Christmas music
and light production is a first for a church in the state of Texas.
Location: Pine Forest Baptist Church • 4800 North Main • Vidor, Texas
Pine Forest Baptist Church is located on the Corridor of the Big Thicket
National Preserve in the Piney Woods of East Texas. It is 8 miles east of
Beaumont on IH 10, 5 miles north of Vidor on FM 105.
Setting: The lighted scenes are being set in a beautiful one acre prayer
garden which was constructed and landscaped with a biblical theme ten years ago by church members.
Construction: The production will include thousands of lights, extended
wiring with elaborate sets directed to a central control computer system.
This system will synchronize the light displays with customized Christmas
music tracks. The stereo music track for Come Listen to the Lights will be
available on a localized F.M. transmitter.
The Minister of Music and Drama is directing the production of Come Listen
to the Lights. He is being provided technical assistance from a
synchronized light production specialist with staff members providing other
customized elements which are being designed for this production. Members of the church will construct the sets, install the lights, wiring, and
other devices for the displays in the prayer garden.
Traffic: The prayer garden is located on the west side the church campus. A large parking area will establish a safe traffic flow off of North FM 105.
Members of the church will be assisting in the traffic flow. Viewers can
remain comfortably in their vehicles listening to the musical tracks on the
F.M. radio while viewing the Christmas themed sets (the F.M. frequency
number will be provided on the church marquee).
Dates: December 12, 13, 14, 19 - 31 from 6:30- 10:00 pm; Sunday nights from 7:30- 10:00 pm. Visit Lights of Pine Forest online.
