A faith-based way to celebrate the Christmas season: Live Nativity displays in Champaign-Urbana
Celebrate the Christmas season by experiencing the Biblical story of Jesus’ birth
Many Champaign-Urbana area churches will invite local families to bring their children to see a depiction of how the Bible describes the birth of Jesus through the use of live actors and animals.
Live Nativity displays allow those who celebrate in Champaign-Urbana to share their faith with the community. When you visit a live Nativity, you can expect to see individuals acting out different roles from the story of Jesus’ birth and typically there will be live animals there at the “manger” too. Some churches will welcome visitors in for hot chocolate, cookies, etc. to warm up during the event (though maybe not this year due to Covid-related guidance).
C-U churches produce several displays, and you can check the links below for more information, including locations, timing and details.
