For nearly four decades New Brighton Christian Church has provided a unique outdoor experience of the Christmas Story. Visitors have an opportunity to experience the wonder of the first Christmas as they drive past people in costumes along with a live donkey, camel and sheep in eight scenes beginning with angel Gabriel and ending with the coming of the wisemen. Music and scripture help explain the scenes and transform the church grounds to Bethlehem 2000 years ago.

Make this a part of your Christmas season traditions! Guests remain in their cars as they drive through the nativity so it is a great, free event to add while out admiring Christmas lights. Put your kiddos in their pajamas, pack the hot cocoa and stay toasty warm in your vehicles.

The live nativity runs Saturday, December 14th and Sunday, December 15th. Continuous showings begin at 6:00 pm and go through 8:00 pm.

No tickets or cost required, just intentional family time centering your hearts on the Reason for the Season.
