Faith Wesleyan Church, 3356 Route 309, Orefield, invites the community to a free drive-through Nativity 7-9 p.m. Dec. 18, 19 and 20.
“Come join us for live animals and actors,” Pastor Brenda Smith says. “You will be blessed.”
Following CDC guidelines, visitors can experience the Christmas story from the safety of their own vehicle as they drive through the town of Bethlehem recreated on the site.
In addition to the Holy Family, expect to see angels, shepherds, the innkeeper, kings, goats, sheep and a donkey.
In the Back to Bethlehem village, townspeople in costume will portray the historic night accompanied by music and narrative.
When you approach the church on the west side of Route 309, look for individuals who will direct you back to the program area. Everything will be outdoors.
