Journey back in time through the Live Nativity

| December 4, 2018

COSHOCTON – Journey back through time to the Live Nativity, Dec. 7 – 9 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. This marks the event that members of Coshocton Christian Tabernacle have planned as their free Christmas gift to the community. The Live Nativity, in its 21st year, has become a holiday tradition for many in the past.

Luminaries light the way as visitors drive through the live scenes depicting the birth of Christ and other well-known events of His life. This 10-minute journey begins at the market place in Bethlehem where the tax collector awaits, and the inn which is full for the evening leads to the stable where Joseph, Mary, and the baby Jesus find rest. A host of heavenly angels alert the shepherds guarding their sheep with good news of Jesus’ birth while the wise men worship the newborn Christ child. The journey is completed with scenes of the most-told stories about Jesus, the carpenter’s shop, Jesus walking on water, a soldier praying at the cross, and most importantly, Jesus at the tomb.

More than 100 church members donate time, talent, animals, and costumes to bring the gift of the Christmas story alive to the community. Guests are encouraged to drive through more than once. Videotaping and photos are allowed, but keep in mind the flow of traffic must be maintained.

This is a great family event for everyone that will bring added meaning and spiritual reflection to your Christmas season. The Coshocton Christian Tabernacle is located at 23891 Airport Rd., Coshocton, across from Wal-Mart. For more information, call 740-622-4133. Regular worship hours for CCT on Sundays are Sunday School at 9 a.m. and morning worship at 10 a.m. and Wednesday evenings at 6 p.m.
