Williamston Memorial Lutheran to hold Nativity Scene on Saturday, Dec. 10
Members of Memorial Ev. Lutheran Church in Williamston invite you to our Live Nativity. Travel back in time and imagine the small town of Bethlehem 2,000 years ago. Roman soldiers are at the city gate and walking the street of the town. They will register your family for the census ordered by Caesar Augustus.
As you drive through or walk the crowded and narrow street, you will see the bustling marketplace and the vendors busy in their shops. The townspeople are gathered by fires and talking about what has happened. In a stable there is a family with their newborn child.
Shepherds are watching their flocks beyond the town. They talk in excited yet hushed voices about seeing angels, and how the angels spoke of the very special baby, our Savior, who’s just been born.
Scripture will be read and songs will be sung. Even though we’ve set the stage, this isn’t a play. You will be witnessing a re-creation of the night our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was born and the miracle of Christmas as it all began.
Enjoy the visit but don’t plan to stay overnight. The inn and town are full!
The city gates are open from 5:30-7:30 PM on December 10 and admission is free, just like God’s mercy and grace to you. Invite your family, friends and neighbors! (1022 W. Grand River Avenue - Call 517-655-2294 for more information.
