Public invited to take part in Live Nativity

Since the 1960s, members of First United Methodist Church have presented a Live Nativity to help the community celebrate Christmas and remember the reason for the season – the birth of Jesus.

The church will host the Live Nativity Sunday evening, Dec. 16, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. This year, the church invites the community to participate and experience the joy of Christmas fellowship. If you or your family would like to stand in the nativity scene as a shepherd, wise man, angel, Mary or Joseph, call the church office at (9400 325-4707 to sign up for a 30-minute shift. You will need to provide a contact name and phone number. People of all ages are needed.

Those participating should arrive 30-minutes prior to their shift. The church is located at 301 N.E. 1st St., behind the Baker Hotel. Enter on the west side of the building into McMaster Hall, where the event is staged before characters move to the actual nativity scene set up outside the church.

Arriving early will give participants time to eat some goodies (fortification for the cold!), put on costumes and stage makeup and gather the props needed for their character to make the scene authentic. Wear warm clothing and don’t be afraid to bundle up. The costumes will fit over bulky clothing.

Preparations and festivities are always taking place behind the scenes. Before the event starts, members set up the nativity backdrop, carry costumes and props out of storage and set up tables to hold the costumes and food to give participants a chance to enjoy the festivities and fellowship. Many members will be on hand to help with costuming, make-up and kitchen duties.

The church will offer food and refreshments in McMaster Hall during the event. Some hot chocolate sure will taste good after standing outside! Christmas carols and holiday treats will remind everyone of the spirit of the season.

So if you’re moved to participate, please give the church a call. If you can’t participate, at least remember to drive by and view the scene, taking a few moments to pause amidst the busyness of the Christmas season to remember the blessed event of Jesus’ birth. The members of First United Methodist hope it touches your heart.

    In the 40-day season of self-denial called Lent, some Christians give up daily comforts such as chocolate, soda or Facebook. Attorney Kent McKeever felt called to try something a little more uncomfortable.

     

    McKeever, a youth minister and Mission Waco legal advocate, is dressing each day head to toe in orange jailhouse scrubs in solidarity with the imprisoned and returning ex-cons shunned by society.
