Local Church Hosts Live Nativity

Local Church Hosts Live Nativity

The Bethesda Worship Center hosted its first ever "drive through nativity" on Sunday night. Sheridan Media's Spencer Porden has all the details.

The Bethesda Worship Center was host to a variety of scenes on Sunday night. The church hosted its first ever “drive through nativity,” featuring everything from wise men to the Holy Family, and even shepherds and their sheep!

Hundreds of cars lined up to drive through and view the depictions of the scenes. After they had completed the journey, people were invited to come inside and have coffee, hot chocolate and Christmas cookies.

Pastor Scott Lee of the Center said that the event turned out to be a huge success.

It took about 50-60 volunteers to make the event happen, not including the sheep and donkeys. Event organizer Judy Hagerott tells us what the event is all about.

The event drew in a great turn out, with a seemingly non-stop line of cars driving through. Both Hagerott and Lee say that they hope to host the event again next year, and want to add even more scenes to the event.

The event was free to everyone, but donations for the Center were accepted. The Bethesda Worship Center is located at 5135 Coffeen Avenue, in the old Woodland Park Elementary School.
