Luckily for you, The Tabernacle Church is presenting The Living Nativity this year, and it is sure to be a sight to see.
Experience what it would be like to walk through Bethlehem on this beautiful day thousands of years ago. There will be live animals present, as well as flying angels floating in the air. It is sure to be a truly magical event.
