NORWAY — An outdoor live Nativity is scheduled to be presented at 5 and 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 18, at the Second Congregational Church, UCC, 205 Main St.

Each presentation will last approximately 30 minutes; there is no charge.

Last year the Second Congregational Church presented its first live Nativity, a drive-thru event. This year, audience members are encouraged to park their cars on the street or in the Ripley lot, wear warm clothes, masks and walk to the “stable.” Spots for those with disabilities will be available in the church lot.

The choir and church member cast will be costumed as shepherds, villagers, angels, kings and the holy family. The actors will enter from different points on the property to visit the baby in the manger. Musicians will play Christmas music.

Audience members can bring a gift to the manger, such as new or gently used mittens, hats and scarves for local school children.

The “stable” in the church parking lot is decorated with Christmas greens and tiny white lights. During this Advent season, in anticipation of Christmas, the lights will be lit in the empty stable.

For more information, contact the church office at 207-743-2290 or [email protected].
