“Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened,
which the Lord has told us about.” So they hurried off and found
Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.
~ Luke 2:15b-16
Come and celebrate the birthday that started it all…
Join us for an amazing journey of faith as we go back in time to experience the origins of the Christmas story. This free, indoor/outdoor performance tells the story of the Nativity through the lens of the first century. You’ll encounter shepherds, livestock, angels, Magi and Roman soldiers, as we transform our campus to become a live, interactive recreation of the sights, sounds and surroundings that Mary and Joseph would have experienced as they traveled to register for the census more than 2000 years ago!
