A Child is Born Drive-Thru Nativity
[frame_right][/frame_right]The Christmas season is a time for making memories and building traditions. St. John’s Annual Live Nativity provides a comfortable, welcoming venue for families to gather in a unique setting and experience the joy of Christmas.
On December 15 & 16 St. John’s Lutheran Church & School will be presenting “A Child is Born Drive-Thru Nativity”. From 6-8 pm on these two evenings, guests can drive through St. John’s campus as they gaze upon a live nativity scene, complete with manger, wise men, shepherds, animals and more.
Special Interests for Children
[frame_right][/frame_right]There will be a children’s angel choir singing for the guests as they drive through. Also there will be a petting zoo if children would like to get out to get a closer look at the animals.
Family Christmas Photos
Have your memories preserved by a photographer while you journey through Bethlehem to witness the celebration of Jesus’ birth. Each member of your family can put on one of the many costumes and pose for a picture with a live donkey in the stable. Photos will be emailed to you at no charge.
