Boldly declaring the birth and deity of Jesus
If you’re looking for a cost-effective way to celebrate this Christmas season while also creating lasting family memories, then visit Granite Creek Community Church’s 10th Annual Living Nativity, held for two consecutive weekends in December.
The event, which draws approximately 10,000 visitors over the 6-day period, runs December 9-12 and 16-19, 6-9 p.m. each evening. Event admission is free and complimentary guest parking is located across the street.
The seven-scene drama recreates pivotal moments surrounding the birth of Jesus Christ, from the angel Gabriel’s pronouncement to Mary of Jesus’ birth, to Caesar Augustus’ devious census declaration, to the ecstatic singing of the heavenly hosts at Jesus’ birth. Elaborate set decorations, a life-sized manger, live animals, and horse-mounted patrolling Roman soldiers and a Persian princess promises to transport you back to first century Jerusalem.
Guests may also purchase a hot meal (made-from-scratch vegetarian and non-vegetarian soups/stews, chili hotdogs, etc.), from our on-site café, and some homemade goodies featuring gourmet brownies, cake pops, and cupcakes. Guests may also opt to get some Christmas shopping done at the Nativity Christmas Boutique, which features a host of hand crafted, unique items.
The Living Nativity is a walk-through tour. Our guests with mobility disabilities are encouraged to tour the nativity via their personal wheelchairs or Electric Convenience Vehicles (ECV). Guests with mobility disabilities wishing to remain in their vehicles are asked to clearly display their disability placard and arrive no later than 8:30 p.m. Trained service animals are welcomed, but must remain on a leash/harness at all times.
