Bringing the Christmas Story to Life
5th Annual Living Nativity &
Pre-Christmas Eve Candlelight Pageant & Family Worship
December 17 @ 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 around the world.
Following the outdoor Living Nativity, all are invited to step into the warm sanctuary for a family-friendly Pre-Christmas Eve service at 6 pm. Designed especially with kids, families and people that love kids and youth in mind! Youth will lead familiar carols and special music. Kids in costume will re-enact 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 5:45 pm)
ASL Guided Tours of the Living Nativity
An ASL interpreter will give a guided tour through the Living Nativity at 5:30 pm. An ASL interpreter will also be available at the 6 pm service that follows the Living Nativity.
