Mount of Olives Church

Drive-Thru Nativity 2021

Mount of Olives Church will offer our annual free Drive-Thru Nativity this December 3 & 4, 2021, from 6:00-10:00pm in Mission Viejo.

Over 250 volunteers are needed to prepare for the two-night event that the families of the church see as a Christmas gift to the community.


Please Review the Volunteer Opportunities below and sign up.
Some volunteer needs are in the weeks leading up to the DTN (like updating sets and touching up costumes), many volunteers are needed for set-up and clean-up before and after the DTN, and most commitments are during the event on Friday & Saturday nights, December 3 & 4, 2021.

Please contact [email protected] with questions.

 

 

*STUDENTS - Please Note we will sign off on Volunteer Hours for School if you participate. Contact Nicole Stirling, Student Ministry Director.

 

In Luke 10:2, Jesus told his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”

 

We're so excited to be able to help share the story of Christmas with our community with the Drive-Thru Nativity for the 27th year, and can't do it without the help of many volunteers.

 

Will you volunteer to share the story of Jesus with those in our community this Christmas?

 

**ALL VOLUNTEERS PLEASE NOTE:

- If you volunteer to serve as an Actor in a Scene - Costume fitting will be Sunday morning 11/21 and 11/28.  Please schedule a fitting appointment. Please contact Chris Taylor to schedule your fitting appointment at 949-285-3910 or click here to email her

- Please be flexible with your scene and role, as this is a theater type production, and we have limited costumes & sizes.  We need volunteer actors to be flexible about their role pending the Costume Fitting Needs. Thank you!
