The story of Jesus' birth returns to the mountains after ten year hiatus

By  | 

LONDON, Ky. (WYMT) After a ten-year hiatus Faith Assembly of God in London is bringing back their intricate live Nativity scene for three days this Christmas.

The church is bringing back the scene to help people remember the reason for the Christmas season.

"It's just a vision that we have of reaching the community and telling of the birth of Jesus," said Lola Reed a member of the Church's congregation.

The Nativity will be on display Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, December 7th, 8th and 9th from 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. or when the last car pulls through.

"We've been working since August just building sets. The last couple of days have been crazy trying to bring things together and get ready to go," said Stacey Sheppard the director of the nativity scene.

More than 200 people will take part in members of the city of Bethlehem.

"To bring the community together," said Sheppard.

When cars pull through the Nativity scene members hope people see what the days were like when Jesus was born, and remember Christmas is not about giving and getting gifts, but instead about the birth of Jesus.

"We pray that it will bring to them such an experience that when they go through those gates whenever they see all of the animals it will just take them back to when Jesus was born and, life in those days," said Reed.
