How better to introduce family and friends to your Savior than by showing them his birth, life, death and resurrection depicted in 14 live scenes? This is the power of the Walk Through Nativity, a tradition with many families, both church members and neighbors. Tonight and tomorrow night, take an easy, 1/4-mile walk that is wheelchair and stroller friendly, concluding with coffee, hot chocolate, and cookies. The admission is free, the message is priceless, but you must HURRY! Click for more details.
