Live Nativity This Weekend!

From the webpage:

Please join us for a Journey to Bethlehem and Beyond. This is a drive-through event so you can stay warm and cozy in the convenience of your vehicle. The event will be held on December 19 and 11, 2016 (beginning at 5:00 PM – Until).
We will transform our campus into the Streets of Bethlehem so that visitors can experience the sights and sounds as they were thousands of years ago to the time of Jesus birth.
Leave the holiday “to do” lists behind — travel back in time and visualize yourself in the midst of the scenes. Open your heart to feeling what young Mary and Joseph felt that lonely night or the inn keeper’s feelings as he made his decisions. It might be the shepherds that harness your thoughts or the kings as they joyously travel to celebrate the Savior’s birth.
You will see Mary and Joseph traveling to Bethlehem. You will witness the shepherds keeping watch over their flock as an angel of the Lord appeared to them. You will pass the Magi and their caravans following the star to the place where the child had been born. There will be a great host of angels praising God. Roman Soldiers will summon you to the city gates where you will be greeted by the Census Takers. You will witness carpenters and blacksmiths at work, along with pottery makers, basket weavers, bakers, and others working at their trade.
You will have the opportunity to see sights such as the Newborn Baby Jesus, the Garden of Gethsemane, the Last Supper, the crucifixion, and the empty tomb. Let your mind take in and think about the sacrifice that Jesus made in order that we might ALL have eternal salvation!
