6 – 8 p.m. Friday, Dec. 18 and Saturday, Dec. 19, 2020*
The event is free and open to everyone.
This year has been a challenging, different year for all of us, yet the good news of great joy from the story of Christmas remains the same! Join us for a meaningful, safe way to experience the Advent Season! From the comfort of your own car, drive through Hyde Park United Methodist’s Magnolia parking lot to experience nine different scenes alternating between the classic story of the birth of Christ and stories from modern-day, which name our struggles and the reasons Jesus is the greatest gift we could ever receive.
Our Drive-Through Nativity features live volunteer actors, live animals, narration to accompany each scene, festive Christmas music and specialty Christmas lighting. Come and share in the joy and the true meaning of Christmas in a new way with us!
- Be ready to listen. The narration and music for scenes will be available on our podcast. Subscribe ahead so you’re ready to go!
- Drive-through takes approximately 20 minutes once you enter the area with scenes.
Pack the car with fun! Put the kids in their PJ’s and bring along some fresh popcorn for everyone to enjoy. Afterwards, check out displays of Christmas lights around town and talk about Jesus being the light of the world.
You will have the opportunity to give an offering at the end that goes toward our Sparrow Fund.
* All cars in line by 8 p.m. will be able to enter the event.

No restrooms will be available.
