What is the Living Nativity?

The Living Nativity is a narrated drive-thru experience that shares the story of the birth of Christ.  This 30-minute outdoor drive-thru presentation comes alive so “that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God and that by believing you may have life in His name.”  John 20:31

Starting in the north entrance to Horizon Christian Fellowship, you will drive through the parking lot and pass through Bethlehem and see the manger, visit the temple, and the carpenter shop where Jesus grew up.  Actors portray the Bible account through the journey.  You will become a witness to the story. It’s our prayer that you discover that the Christ who forever defines Christmas is still changing lives today.

What Should I Expect?

As you enter the north entrance to Horizon Christian Fellowship, you will be greeted and given instructions for driving through.  Once you begin, the full presentation will take an estimated 20-30 minutes. As you drive through, you will stop at 10 different scenes where you will see and hear the Christmas story come to life with actors and animals.  Dress warm since you will be driving  with your car windows down.  

The event closes at the times noted, but the Living Nativity remains in operation until the last car reaches the exit.

This is a FREE event!
