Creekwood Hosts 13th Annual Live Nativity Event, Dec. 6 & 7th
Participants Will View a Re-creation of the First Christmas in an Actual Stable and Have the Opportunity to Enjoy Several Fun Family Activities
Creekwood United Methodist Church will once again host a live nativity this holiday season. Families will have the chance to experience the first Christmas in a special setting reflective of the original event.
This two-night production, which will be held Wednesday and Thursday, December 6 and 7, will feature live animals. During the 15-minute storytelling, actors portraying Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, and the three wise men act out the scene as it was on that same cold night in Bethlehem over 2,000 years ago.
“We invite all in our community to this special event,” said senior pastor, David Lessner. “The nativity has become a family tradition for many and is a wonderful way to get into the spirit of the season. This year we’re adding several activities to enable families who wish to be able to spend a little more time together celebrating the season.”
After enjoying carolers, children’s crafts activities and complimentary hot chocolate, cookies and other refreshments, guests will be ushered into the barn where they’ll be taken back in time to the evening that Jesus was born. Before or after the nativity, families will be able to take part in an illuminating, magical, musical hayride complete with tasty treats. Hayrides will begin at 5:30 p.m. Activities are free to all in the community. Bring a jar of peanut butter to support the efforts of the Assistance Center of Collin County and the Plano Santas.
All families with special needs are invited to join us for a more intimate showing of the Live Nativity on Wednesday, December 6, 5:30pm, in the barn.
In addition to the Live Nativity events, Creekwood UMC will host two Christmas Eve services in the barn at 1:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Additionally, Christmas Eve services will be offered in Creekwood’s worship center at 10:15 a.m. (worship with traditional Christmas music), 3:00 p.m. (children’s service), 4:30 p.m. (contemporary service), 6:00 p.m. (second contemporary service) and 7:30 p.m. (traditional service). All services are open to the public.
