Living Nativity set for Saturday evening

The Evangelism Committee at First Lutheran Church in Glencoe, along with the Rev. James Gomez of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, also in Glencoe, are planning another live nativity to take place at Oak Leaf Park this Saturday, Dec. 20, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The two organizing churches were approached by the Glencoe Area Chamber of Commerce two years ago with hopes that Glencoe could have a living nativity similar to that in Arlington.
The procession will begin at the main entrance to the park on the east side, turning left by the softball field, where the Boy Scouts will be accepting donations for the food shelf. The scenes go clockwise through the park, and each scene is fully lit. The scenes will be depicted at six stations, including Mary and the angel Gabriel, Mary and Joseph travel to Bethlehem, Shepherds in the Field, the angel choir, wise men and camels and, of course, the manger scene itself.
This year’s live nativity will include many members from Good Shepherd, First Lutheran, Christ Lutheran, St. Pius and other area churches. It also will include some live animals, such as sheep, goats and llamas.
