Live Nativity at Main Street Baptist Church

Members of Main Street Baptist Church presented a live nativity last Wednesday night. Even though it was not as cold as it had been in previous years, the hot chocolate was enjoyed by those in attendance. Thanks to the dedicated members, a quick meal was provided. Several shifts, consisting of different member of the church, coordinated their efforts to help celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Locals stopped, pedestrians communicated with the church members, and it almost seemed as if no one wanted to leave. Main Street Baptist Church looks forward to next years live nativity.
