The First Church of the Nazarene will have their Drive Through Nativity ready to open this weekend from December 8th – December 10th from 6:30 – 9:30 PM, located at 1400 S. Lancaster St. in Big Spring. This live presentation displays real people and most of the animals are real, as well.
According to Calvary Callender, Lead Pastor at the NazFamily Church, this is the 31st year that the nativity has been presented to the community and it has become a Christmas tradition for many people and that this is their gift to the community.
“We have carloads of people come through with 3 generations in them now, with grandparents, parents, and children, who coming through and telling us, ‘Thank you for this time. It’s a time that we come together during Christmas as a family.”
Callender also went on to say that the event is also important to the church, stating, “It’s also a gift in that we’re telling the story of Jesus, for our church, the purpose to reach people for Jesus to let them know who he is. It’s a gift in that regard that we can tell the story of Jesus, his birth, his death, resurrection, and ascension.
