Hillspring Church invites you to experience the Living Nativity, a traditional telling of the Christmas story, with performances from Dec.19 through Dec. 23.

The local cast features Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, angels, Roman soldiers, majestic kings, and shepherd families.  Live animals help tell the story including; camels, sheep, cows, horses and donkeys. The Living Nativity journey begins inside, before Jesus is even born, but be prepared to bundle up as the story concludes dramatically outside around the manger.

Performances are scheduled Tuesday, Dec. 19 and Wednesday, Dec. 20 at 6:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and on Thursday, Dec. 21 through Saturday, Dec. 23 at 6 p.m., 7 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Come experience the wonder. Come experience the hope. Shepherds, wise men, camels and all! Then, continue the experience Christmas Eve with candlelight worship at 10 a.m., 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Hillspring Church is a community of hope located at 1153 Gage Boulevard in Richland.
