POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) -

It's Christmas time in the Heartland. For many, it's a time for giving, and for one Poplar Bluff church it's also a time to share the gift of music.

Palace of Praise church is putting on a live musical play called, "The Sounds of Christmas."

Admission is free to the public.

Associate Pastor Randy West said the play will run four nights and after the last two performances, church members will give gifts to hundreds of children in need.

West said last year about 4,000 people attended the production and around 400 kids were given gifts. He said he hopes this year will bring even more people.

"[We want to] help people to hear, maybe for the first time, what the true meaning of Christmas is and hopefully it will change their lives because the message of the production tells you that there is hope and it's through Jesus Christ," West said. "For the children, we get to bless them and put a smile on their face and help some families that are having a tough time."

The play will begin at 7 p.m. every night December 15 through December 18.

Palace of Praise is located at 1400 Herschel Bess Blvd in Poplar Bluff.
