4 and 6 p.m. Dec. 19.
Outdoor Sanctuary Courtyard.
Experience the Nativity in a new way with an immersive, 30-minute retelling of the Christmas story.
The stage will be set with live animals and carolers, ready for you, the audience, to complete the cast of characters.
After the story has been told, enjoy a cup of hot chocolate as you craft and create through the Nativity Marketplace and visit with the live animals.
How does this work?
- Upon arriving, children (of all ages) will select a costume from the Children’s Team.
- The costume will have a corresponding picture (Angel, Shepherd, Sheep, King).
- During the story, when that picture is held up, whoever selected that character will move to the stage area and follow the character lead holding the character picture sign to participate in the storytelling.
- Everyone is invited to sing along with the carols as well.
Volunteer roles (youth or adults):
- Character Leads
- Live Animal Leads
- Marketplace Hosts
- Hot Chocolate Servers
- Set up/Clean up
