TABLEAU – Live Nativity

Every year the 2BC family and friends join together to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ with a live nativity scene and some fellowship. We share the gospel through the simple act of standing as some of the characters that would have been there for or shortly after the birth of the Savior, while a recording plays telling the story through narration and music. All are welcome to join us! Come sit and see the sight from the hay bails placed on the side walk, drive by, or come on in and fellowship with us in the gym.
