On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshipped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh. Matthew 2:11.
Woodlands Lutheran Church in Montverde is offering its 26th year of its annual Living Nativity on December 6th, 8th and 9th. Continuous 20 minute outdoor, walk-though tours of the greatest story ever told begin at 6:30pm. With the help of our congregation and our good friends at Youth With A Mission (YWAM), we’ve casted over 100 people in the various scenes that depict the fore-telling, life, death and resurrection of Jesus. We expect well over 2000 people to walk the tour.
Admission is always free. We ask our guests to bring a non-perishable food item to share with our neighbors in need. Attending this event has become a tradition for many of our friends and neighbors. Those taking the tour are treated to pre-walk entertainment which includes hilarious skits, Christmas sing-a-longs, poignant moments, and instructions. Guests will be led by a guide to each scene, which depicts a significant and magnificent moment in the life of Christ. Every act includes guest interaction, and the market place scene includes live animals. After the tour, guests are guided to the fellowship area to enjoy a cookie (lovingly baked by our congregation) and a cup of delicious hot chocolate.
