The Nativity Experience

Saturday, December 11, 2021 from 5 pm to 8 pm

The goal of our Nativity Experience is to present the story of the birth of Christ in a new way to our community that will give them a better understanding of the Christmas Season.

SUMC Family - we need your help! Volunteering to be a part of The Nativity Experience is a great way to love on our neighbors in extraordinary ways at this outreach event. 

There are lots of different ways that you and your whole family or life group can get involved.

We need lots of volunteers for the Marketplace and this is a place where you and your family or small group can serve together. Pick one of the options and you get to control the layout from set-up to tear-down! You can create a "booth" in a variety of ways - have a table, a tent, chairs, overturned boxes covered in fabric, whatever suits your theme. Add some props that would believably be seen in the Bible-era and you're set. There's no acting required but be sure to wear neutral colors - long robes make a great costume!

We do have some costumes and props available. Please contact [email protected] to reserve a costume or review our prop availability. 

Contact [email protected] with volunteer questions.

For Marketplace/Tent questions please contact [email protected].
