About the Event

Experience the true spirit of Christmas during the Live Drive-Thru Nativity presented by the middle and high school youth of St. John Lutheran Church of Russell.

The nativity will bring Christ's birth to life by using actors and animals. The drive-thru aspect will make it convenient for people to experience.

"This is an easy way for people to come and see the nativity while they stay in the warmth of their car," said Charlie Krug, St. John 425 Youth member. "The whole family can experience the Christmas story together."

The Live Drive-Thru Nativity will be presented in the parking lot of Russell Livestock Commission at 720 South Fossil Street on Sunday, December 19. Community members are invited to drive through the nativity scene between 6:30 and 8 PM. Once you enter the parking lot, be sure and open your windows to enjoy reflective Christmas music.

Kelvie Reeves, St. John 425 Youth member, is one of many volunteers organizing the event. "This live nativity presentation is our gift to the community," Reeves said. "We hope this small event will bring the spirit of hope, peace and joy to all."

Witness the shepherds keeping watch over their flocks, the wise men following the star and the glorious birth of Jesus Christ. The event will feature scenes leading up to the birth of Jesus Christ. Experience Mary and Joseph traveling to the City of David to pay their taxes, the shepherds in the field keeping watch over their flocks by night, a multitude of angels and the glorious birth of Jesus Christ into the world.

Children and adults will love the authentic experience of live sheep, donkeys, goats and even camels. They suggest bringing blankets, warm pajamas and hot cocoa as you enjoy this event from the comfort of your own vehicle.

Although there is no admission fee, a free-will offering will be collected. The 425 Youth are fundraising for an upcoming trip to Manhattan to visit the KSU Campus Ministry and participate in a service project.
