Since 1957, wise men, shepherds, angels, and the community have gathered on Love Street in Austell to see the baby Jesus.
The attraction: the annual Living Nativity at Austell Presbyterian Church December 20-22 from 7 to 8pm.
This year the tableau will feature special music each night. Thursday evening, the Austell Chancel Choir will be featured. Friday evening, the church’s youth group led by Lynda Pearce will sing. On Saturday, local gospel singer Tony Peace and friends will be on hand to present special music.
After viewing the Nativity, the community is invited to tour the 121 year-old decorated sanctuary as well as enjoy cider and soup in the warmth of Kirk Hall. This year a fire pit and children’s crafts have been added.
“Almost every member of our church turns out to be in the nativity, sing, or provide hospitality. We love to share this event with everyone in the community," said Austell Presbyterian’s pastor Dave Pearce.
Austell Presbyterian Church is located at 5895 Love Street in Old Austell. For more details contact the church at (770) 948-2822 or check out their web site at www.austellpres.org.
