Methodist Church preparing annual living nativity
Carson City First United Methodist Church will present its nineth annual living nativity from 6:30-8 p.m. on Dec.12 and 13.
The church is located at the intersection of Musser and Division streets and the drive through begins at the corner of King and Division streets.
Visitors are also encouraged to walk the “Path to Bethlehem,” which is lighted by more than 800 luminaries.
There is no charge to enjoy this Christmas pageant, which represents church members’ Christmas gift to Northern Nevada. A voluntary donation of non-perishable food will go to the community’s unemployed.
Begun nine years ago, the living nativity occupies an entire city block and comprises 10 scenes depicting the story of Jesus’ birth.
The scenes are enacted with the help of more than 200 church members and also include living donkeys, sheep and cows. Christmas music is broadcast during the event.
More than 3,000 people experienced the living nativity last year. Many were crying as they left, moved by this touching re-enactment.
