Asbury United Methodist Church is hosting our first-ever LIVE NATIVITY this Christmas season! We are bringing the wonder, excitement and joy of that first Christmas alive through an outdoor representation of the glorious simplicity of the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

As part of this event, we will have children and adults in costume and live animals (including a camel!) recreating that First Night, so long ago. Refreshments and entertainment will also be available.

We encourage everyone to come and experience the true meaning of Christmas. All churches and denominations are welcome. Jesus is a gift to all!

For more information, contact Susan Bounds at susan@asburypetal.com, or call the church office at 601-545-3006.
