Experience the story of the birth of our savior Jesus Christ at the Living Nativity! The Biblical story will be narrated and portrayed by church members on Saturday and Sunday evenings. The audience will be encouraged to sing along as several Christmas songs help tell the story as we navigate through the events of Christ’s birth.
The living nativity production will repeat every half hour beginning at 6pm and lasts 15-20 minutes. After the story, children will have an opportunity to pet live animals and families can take photos of the manger scene prior to the next production starting.
Cookies, hot cocoa and coffee will be served in the Fellowship Hall throughout the evening. We will also have a coloring/craft table set up for the little ones. Everyone is welcome!
This Christmas, come and learn about the greatest gift of all and be reminded of the true meaning of Christmas.
Beachside Baptist Church is located at 629 S. Pine Street on the beach/ocean side of New Smyrna Beach. We are a half-block north of Norwood’s on the east side of Pine Street. See map.
Parking will be available in our parking lot (handicap), on the street (east side), and in the empty lot on the west side of the street across from the church. There will be parking attendants to help you find a parking space. Please be patient as you enter and exit the street. We anticipate heavy traffic.
The church is completely accessible. Outside, where the live nativity takes place, guests in wheelchairs may remain on the sidewalk. Your view should be good. Other guests will stand and sit in the grassy area north of the sanctuary building. Hay bales are provided for seating. You may bring your own lawn chair if you’d like. Don’t be surprised if 3 kings travel through the audience following a star!
Time to Allow
The production spans about twenty minutes. You can wait in the Fellowship Hall prior to, or after, the performance and enjoy refreshments. After each production, children will want some time to pet the animals too! We recommend planning no less than 45 minutes.
There is no cost to visit the Living Nativity. The presentation is our church’s gift to you out of our love for the Savior—so you may know about God’s greatest gift: His Son Jesus Christ, our Lord.
