Saturday, December 7, 2019 - 11:00 am - 8:00 pm

Celebrate the first Christmas!

“While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.” Luke 2:6-7

Imagine what the first Christmas was like with shepherds, cows, sheep, and angels! We give children a hands-on experience that helps them imagine the first Christmas. You are invited to our Live Nativity to experience the telling of the story of Jesus’ birth. We share about living in Israel 2000 years ago and teach about the shepherds and their care of the sheep. You’ll see beautiful photographs of the Holy Land, where Jesus was born and where he lived.
