Drive-Thru LIVE Nativity

Saturday, December 19, 2020
1:30 PM – 3:30 PM

Drive-Thru LIVE NativityCome and celebrate Christ’s birth from the safe comfort of your vehicle during our Drive-Thru LIVE Nativity featuring costumed actors and live animals.

You will experience the sights and sounds of the night when Jesus was born as you drive through our six scenes at this free family-friendly event (donations appreciated) that will be spread out throughout our lower parking lot.

We need volunteers to be costumed greeters to pass out programs, accept donations, set up and tear down on the day of the event.

For safety reasons, we are asking that each scene is performed by members of the same family/household or quarantine bubble. The characters can be any age. Adults and children are encouraged to participate!!

  • Scene 1 - Angel appears to Mary.
  • Scene 2 - Ceasar Augustus reads decree surrounded by 2–3 Roman soldiers.
  • Scene 3 - Mary and Joseph travel to Bethlehem.
  • Scene 4 - Mary and Joseph at the Inn asking the innkeeper for a room.
  • Scene 5 - Angels appear to Shepherds in the field.
  • Scene 6 - Stable/Manger scene with Wise Men, Shepherds, Mary, Joseph, Jesus, Angel.

Sign up online HERE to volunteer. Questions? Contact Brynn Pacitti.

You are encouraged to be creative with your costume and use items that you may easily create on your own, or to use some of the existing costumes from the church.
