The Grace Lutheran Church was home to the Nativity Scene of Baby Jesus' birth this weekend.

On Saturday, December 1, Grace Lutheran Church welcomed just under 200 people who had a chance to witness a live action version of baby Jesus' birth.

"We had the Town of Bethlehem set up. So we had all kind of shops set up that might have been in the Town of Bethlehem," explained Co-Organizer, Kirstin Sutcliffe. "We had a weaving shop, a metal working shop and a perfume shop. We had like, 12 different shops."

During the walk around of the Town of Bethlehem, live animals were present, snacks for visitors and individuals dressed up as a person who may have lived in the Town of Bethlehem, including Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus.

"(It took) months of planning and preparation. The last couple of weeks were spent at the church setting up the shops. Getting all the decorations in order and props in order," said Sutcliffe about the process before Saturday's event.

"I think it was a really successful event. It felt like a bustling town because there were so many people there at some point," she concluded.

Sutcliffe and the organizers want to thank every volunteer who had a part in setting up the Town of Bethlehem saying that it wouldn't have been so successful without them.
