A number of communities offer live nativity scenes for Christmas that reflect the celebration of the birth of Jesus.

-Between Thanksgiving and Christmas a number of area churches and organizations will hold a live nativity. Some allow visitors to walk through and others offer a drive through experience.  

It is an opportunity to witness the moment that changed history and transport the audience back to the town of Bethlehem and the birth of Jesus Christ.  

People take part in the scenes that come alive and many times actual animals will be used as well. 

Many groups use the live nativity as an outreach ministry to share the gospel of Christ. 

As we get closer to Christmas there are still a few area live nativity scenes being presented in the West Michigan area.
