Live Nativity

Click image to enlarge

In December of 2007 the Stone Church wanted to give a Christmas gift to the community. The Live Nativity was that gift. Our attempt to recreate the sights, sounds and even the smells of Bethlehem at the time of Christ's birth was well received. Perhaps the best review came from a child who said to his mother as they were leaving, "I saw Jesus!"

The Live Nativity returned in 2008 despite frigid cold and high wind. Even with the disagreeable weather, more than 600 people visited our village. Our hope is that they all saw something of the wonderful gift of God in the birth of Jesus that night.

More than 500 people visited our 2009 depiction of Bethlehem! It was chilly, but with calm winds. It was a beautiful night!
