Recreation of the First Christmas
December 9 & 10, 2015
Creekwood United Methodist Church is hosting a live nativity this December 9 & 10, 2015. Families across the DFW Metroplex will have the chance to experience the first Christmas in a setting reminiscent of the original event.
This two-night live event, which will be held Wednesday and Thursday, December 9 & 10, 2015, will feature live animals, actors portraying Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, and the three wise men. They will act out a 15-minute retelling of the same cold night in Bethlehem over 2,000 years ago, that Jesus was born.
“What an impactful experience it is for adults and children alike to watch a true reenactment of the first very humble Christmas,” said senior pastor, David Lessner. “We are blessed to have the facilities and committed volunteers to present this special production to our community.”
After enjoying carolers, children’s craft activities and complimentary hot chocolate, cookies and other refreshments, guests will then be ushered into the barn where they’ll be taken back in time to the evening that Jesus was born.
