Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church will continue its traditional portrayal of the birth of Christ as a Living Nativity scene from 5-7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 10 and Saturday, Dec. 11. This is the 23rd anniversary of the event. Visiting the Living Nativity has become a tradition for many viewers from Fremont County and beyond. Everyone is invited to join in the tradition at 801 Sheridan Ave. to help celebrate the Christmas season.

The cast, consisting of members from Shepherd of the Hills and Christ Episcopal churches, includes the Holy Family, angels, shepherds, wise men and animals participating outdoors. Many others are involved as support staff behind the scenes. Donations of non-perishable food items and cash will be accepted on behalf of Loaves & Fishes Ministries.

Upon arriving at the church, visitors may either drive through and observe from their vehicles or park their vehicles on the east side of Sheridan or in the church parking lot and walk along the display and reflect as the story is told through Bible readings and music. Organizers request that visitors not in the same households observe social distancing guidelines.

The church is the last building on the left on Sheridan. To drive to the Nativity, go north on 15th Street, turn left onto Woodlawn Avenue and at the second stop sign turn right onto Sheridan. Or, go north on Ninth Street, turn right onto College and then turn left onto Sheridan (one block past the high school). Check the Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church Facebook page to make sure the event has not been canceled due to unforeseen circumstances.
