he Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, co-sponsored with the City of Platte City – will present a Live Nativity Drive-Thru on Saturday, Dec. 11, from 6-8 p.m., displayed in the parking lot at the church building at 2700 Ensign Drive in Platte City.
The public is invited to view for free nine different scenes commemorating the story of The Christ for the purpose of celebrating the birth of the Savior to bless mankind, the real meaning of Christmas.
The nine tableaux to be featured will include live animals as appropriate and will commemorate the major Biblical events that tell the story of the Savior. Some of these scenes to be depicted will be the Prophet Isaiah writing the prophecies foretelling of the Savior’s birth; the visit of the Angel Gabriel to Mary; Joseph and Mary’s Journey to Bethlehem; the shepherds see a new star; the Wise Men seek Jesus; and, of course, the baby Jesus in the stable with Mary and Joseph.
The event proved to be very popular last year.
To access this special free event without leaving their vehicles, the public is asked to enter the church parking lot from Ensign Drive and to exit onto Broken Bridge Lane to return home.
For any additional information, contact Lisa Little, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Platte City Stake communications director, at 816-262-8161.
