Lighthouse Baptist to provide live nativity Dec. 8

What started out as a simple manger scene outside a church during the Christmas season has become a full-fledged nativity over the years, coming complete with live animals.

Lighthouse Missionary Baptist Church will host its live nativity an Saturday, Dec. 8, from 6-9 p.m.

The event will includes a drive-through portion where visitors can travel back in time without even getting out of their cars.

In all, 12 scenes will be depicted during the event.

More than 125 people are involved in putting on the nativity.

Additional activities will be held inside the church.

All are welcome to attend this free event. The Lighthouse Missionary Baptist Church is located on Highway 81 South, approximately 2 miles outside of Jonesborough.

Weve been doing it at this location for the last four years, said Steve Ferguson, church member.

Its just grown to be a real outreach for the church.
