Coshocton Christian Tabernacle presents live Nativity

"Journey back through time to…The Live Nativity," will be presented Dec. 7-9 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Coshocton Christian Tabernacle, 23891 Airport Road, Coshocton, (across from Wal-Mart).

The live Nativity, in its 15th year, has become a holiday tradition for many in the past. Luminaria light the way as visitors drive through the scenes depicting the birth of Christ, and other well-known events of his life. This 10-minute journey begins at the market place in Bethlehem where the dreaded tax collector awaits, the Inn which is full for the evening leads to the stable where Joseph, Mary and the baby Jesus find rest. A host of heavenly angels alert the shepherds guarding their sheep with good news of Jesus' birth, while the Wise Men worship the newborn Christ child. The journey is completed with scenes of the most told stories about Jesus ... the carpenter's shop, Jesus walking on water, a soldier praying at the cross, Jesus at the tomb, and most importantly, Heaven's Gates.

More than 100 church members donate time, talent, animals and costumes to bring the gift of the Christmas story alive to the community. Guests are encouraged to drive through more than once. Videotaping and photos are allowed; keeping in mind the flow of traffic must be maintained.

For more information call, 740-622-4133.
