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 20 St. John’s Lutheran Church & School will be presenting “A Child is Born Drive-Thru Nativity”. From 6-8 pm 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.
Children’s Angel Choir: The Children’s angel choir will be singing for the guests as they drive through.
Petting Zoo for Children: There will be a petting zoo if children would like to get a closer look at the animals.
Giving Back:Take this opportunity to give back by donating to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC. Non-perishable food donations of canned or packaged food will be accepted during the Drive-thru Nativity. Monetary donations may also be made to the Food Bank.
“Last December I was invited to experience St. John’s Live Nativity. I was very impressed with the planning that went into this event and the huge number of people involved to help make this so successful. It was a very serene yet animated scene with angels, wise men, Mary, Joseph, shepherds, along with a children’s choir, and live animals. The night air was cold, participants served in shifts and I know there were many people behind the scene: costume makers, traffic controllers, animal care-takers, set builders, lighting technicians, and many others. It was an amazing and spiritual experience.” Sue Hepner, Pinehurst, NC
St. John’s will be providing other ways to celebrate Christmas.
