The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day aints in Phelan hosted a drive-thru Nativity and it was glorious. On the evening of December 18th at a chilling 38 degrees, the youth of the church performed a live nativity scene in the Church’s parking lot.
The event took place between 6:00pm-8:00pm. Flocks of Tri-Community residents attended the event. They were greeted at the entrance of the church by the youth of the congregation, who were directing traffic safely with lights. Beautiful handwritten signs were placed one by one, along the driving path that told the story of the birth of Christ, to be read by visitors as they approached the live Nativity where each part was performed by the youth of the Church. As folks drove beyond looking for the exit, they were directed to park in a drive-in movie area to sit in the comfort of their own vehicle and view the story of the birth of Christ on a large screen. After guests drove to the exit, they received gift bags for everyone in the vehicle. Each bag containing a packet of hot cocoa mix, tiny marshmallows, a candy cane, a Christmas greeting, and a coupon for a free bible. The kids were kind and polite and directed the whole production professionally. Exactly what our community needed, as this year comes to an end.
