Live Nativity Finds a New Home

NEW LOCATION: Our annual event will now be moving to St, Matthew Lutheran Church @ 15617 Mason Road, Vermilion, Ohio.

Our walk-through Bethlehem, to share the story of Jesus, will be on December 9th and December 10th from 4;00 to 8:00 pm. Walk-through presentations are approximately every 15 minutes.

Shepherd tour guides will take you through the city where you will meet the Tax Collector, several shop keepers, King Herod, the Inn Keeper, the Angel of the Lord, a Choir of Angels (Firelands Select Choir), and finally the Holy family surrounded by live animals.

After your tour, you will be invited to our fellowship hall for warm drinks and lots of home baked goodies.
