25th ANNIVERSARY: “The Living Christmas Story” is presented for 25th Consecutive Year

Plan now to join Union United Methodist Church as we present “The Living Christmas Story” for its 25th consecutive year! This long-standing “free gift to the community’”continues as the drive-through nativity pageant will be held Friday through Sunday, December 7-9, 2018 from 6:30 to 9 pm each night. Live animals, 200+ cast members, authentic costumes, and handcrafted scenery make this a memorable Christmas experience for all ages.

From the comfort of a vehicle, experience sights and sounds of life as it might have been in the town of Bethlehem over 2000 years ago, including the synagogue, the market, the village well, and people searching for a room while Roman soldiers stand guard. You will ride through 18 traditional scenes from the Bible such as Gabriel’s visit to Mary, the angels’ message to the shepherds, the Wise Men’s visit with King Herod, , and the humble stable where the Christ child was born.

Visitors in cars and other vehicles are directed down the road to “Bethlehem” after turning onto the church grounds. Church vans and institutional vehicles are given priority in line and should park in the lot on St. Andrews Road across from the church to be directed to the entrance to the church grounds. Visitors to “Bethlehem” can also choose to park their vehicle across the street from the church near the shopping center sign and ride one of the church vans which will make regular trips through “The Living Christmas Story” before bringing passengers back to their cars.

Over the past 24 years, more than 140,000 visitors have enjoyed “The Living Christmas Story” at Union United Methodist Church in Irmo.
