LIVE WALK-THROUGH NATIVITY, December 14 & 15  Ozark Academy will be presenting a live walk-through nativity again this year. It will be held on the academy campus on Friday, December 14 from 6-9 PM and also on Sabbath, December 15 from 2-5 PM. This will be a fully costumed cast of a hundred or more participants complete with a wide variety of animals to create the ambience of Bible times. Guests will be led by a tour guide from scene to scene learning about the history, background and story of Jesus birth, ministry, sacrifice on the cross and lastly ending with His resurrection.

This is meant to be an outreach for our fellow church members as well as our local community as we present the Christmas story. We had approximately 600 people walk through the nativity last year and hope to build a family Christmas tradition in the community as we present this story of Jesus’ life.

There are many ways you could be involved — building a scene/set, helping with electric work, calling local newspapers or radio stations, making and serving cookies, organizing costumes, assisting with parking or serving refreshments — just to name a few.

If this is something you have an interest in, please join us at our first organizational meeting on Sunday, September 16 from 6-7 PM in the Ad Building at the academy. If you are not able to make it to that meeting but would still like to participate in some way, please feel free to call or text Judy Fetters at (804)874-9430.

Any little bit helps— there is no job too big or too small. I am sure that God will bless our efforts as we seek to share the true meaning of CHRISTmas with our brothers and sisters.
