Annual live nativity celebrates birth of Jesus
- Written by By Carolyn McCraw
This Christmas, the public is once again invited to experience the birth of Jesus at the Good Shepherd Episcopal Church in Kingwood. The 27th annual live outdoor reenactment of the birth of Jesus will be presented Dec. 20, 21 and 22 with performances at 6:30, 7 and 7:30 p.m. The sights and sounds of the night of miracles will surround visitors, as a live cast of parishioners of all ages playing the part of the holy family, shepherds, angels and wise men. Live stable animals will also be featured in this reenactment. Visitors will hear the readings of the Christmas story and voices will blend together in holy adoration singing traditional carols. “The live nativity is Good Shepherd Episcopal Church’s living Christmas card to the Kingwood community. We look forward to sharing the birth of Christ with all our neighbors,” said Bruce Sommers, vestry liaison for evangelism. The Kingwood community has enjoyed the joyous account of this production since 1986. Visiting this live Nativity scene around Christmas time can be a memorable and meaningful family tradition. Step into the Christmas story and experience a live reenactment of that night in Bethlehem when Jesus Christ was born into the world. St. Nicholas pays a visit at the conclusion of each performance, followed by refreshments. Good Shepherd Episcopal Church Kingwood is located at 2929 Woodland Hills Drive at the corner of Lake Hills Drive. For more information, visit goodshepherdkingwood.org, or call 281-358-3154.
