Rushford Church Community’s live Nativity Christmas presentation
The free event is set for Friday, Dec. 20 and Saturday, Dec. 21. There will be performances at 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. both days outside of Rushford Lutheran Church, along Highway 43. Each performance will feature actors walking through the roles of Mary and Joseph, shepherds, angels and magi as the story is narrated from the Bible. The scripture reading is punctuated by beautiful music sang by the choir of angels and the wise men, featuring such songs as “Breath of Heaven” and “O Holy Night”. There will also be live animals at the manger, which children can greet between performances.
After each 20 minute show, everyone is welcome to warm up with refreshments and fellowship in the church basement. Parking is available along Hwy. 43 and side streets. The group encourages attendees to allow those transporting elderly and handicap individuals to use parking spaces closest to the church. The group will be accepting donations for the local food shelf.
