North Nixa Baptist Church - Living Nativity

The Story of Jesus

We just hosted our third annual Drive Through Living Nativity event in December 2017 with over 2,400 visitors.

In the spring of 2015, our former pastor, now retired, shared his dream of presenting a live Nativity event for our community. After much prayer and consideration, our church family determined our property presented a perfect opportunity for us to share a drive-through living Nativity.

Almost 90 people from our congregation dress in period costume and share what Bethlehem might’ve looked like at the time of the birth of Christ. In 2015 and 2016, almost 2,000 people visited over a three-night period.

In our living nativity, guests encounter King Herod, observe the happenings in the town of Bethlehem, see live animals, listen to the angel choir, and see Mary and Joseph and Baby Jesus. There is no charge for this event and we welcome everyone to come celebrate the true reason for Christmas, Jesus Christ.
