the Christmas Story brought to life
6th Annual Living Nativity° &
Christmas Eve Candlelight Pageant & Family Worship°
Sunday, December 16 @ 5-7 pm
“The Living Nativity is Messiah Church’s invitation to the community to come and be blessed by a story that is 2,000 years old and see how that story comes to life,” said Steve Richards, Senior Pastor of Messiah Church.
The entire community is invited to attend this outdoor event, then warm up inside with a light dinner and entertainment. There will be activities for kids and an opportunity to participate in a service project – assembling health kits that will be distributed to disaster areas in the United States.
Following the outdoor Living Nativity, all are invited to step into the warm sanctuary for a family-friendly Christmas Eve Candlelight Pageant and Family Worship° at 6 pm featuring organ-led carols. Kids in costume will share the story of Jesus’ birth, including a real live baby Jesus. Hold your candle high as we end the service singing Silent Night. Childcare is available, if needed. (Music begins at 5:30 pm)
