WINFIELD - The Winfield First Baptist Church will be presenting a live nativity display on Sunday, Dec. 16, at Winfield’s Ivan K. Hill Recreational Park, complete with real camels, sheep, donkeys, goats, horses and more.
From 5:30 - 8:30 Sunday evening, onlookers can drive through 11 scenes that depict the miracle birth of Jesus.
In each scene, residents can watch from their cars as both children and adults reenact the very first Christmas miracle.
Children’s church director Candace Shipp said that the event will also feature two scenes about the death and resurrection of Jesus.
In order for visitors to follow along with the story, each car will be given either a CD to play that narrates each scene, or for those who do not have CD players, the church will have portable CD players so that everyone can follow along with the timeless story.
Following the drive, families are welcomed to walk around and enjoy some complimentary hot chocolate, popcorn and soda. Some animals will be on display and families will also have an opportunity to take a family photo at an available photo booth.
This is the first year that the church is doing the live nativity scene, but next year, Shipp said they hope to expand the event to multiple nights.
The event is free to the public and everyone is invited to attend.
