PINEY FLATS — Nativity sets using live actors and real animals have become a tradition at some churches, but Piney Flats First Baptist Church has produced a series of such stages on its campus designed so that the audience can view each set as they drive around it in their car.

“This tells the Christmas story, but it depicts the entire life of Christ,” church music minster Brian Wilson said. Wilson said the exhibits begin with Bible prophecy, showing the Old Testament prophecies about Christ.

Wilson said the sets then go on to show the classical nativity scene, then other major events in Christ’s life, leading up to the empty tomb.

This is a program that is good for all members of the family,” Wilson said. “It has a real evangelistic emphasis and our hope is to reach others.”

There are 10 different sets, with more than 60 actors and live animals used to provide a realistic portrayal of the events.

The performances will take place from 6-9 p.m. from Friday Dec. 8 through Sunday, Dec. 10.
