Living Nativity Rescheduled for Sunday, Dec. 29

GILFORD — Due to the snow storm on December 15 the First United Methodist Church of Gilford has rescheduled the Living Nativity for Sunday, December 29 at noon.

The Methodist Church has been a large part of the annual Live Nativity for many years in Gilford Village, but due to the issues surrounding safe places for the animals during the Nativity, and parking for the trailers as well as those who come to the program, the church decided to have the Living Nativity at their church at 18 Wesley Way (off Rt. 11A near the 3/11 by-pass) in Gilford.

Jeff and Joyce Keyser will bring Eeyore the donkey and some sheep from Ramblin' Vewe Sheep Farm to help in the Nativity. After the program everyone will be able to see the animals up close and learn a bit about them.

Any children wishing to participate as shepherds or angels are welcomed to join the presentation. Adults who would like to participate are also welcomed. Just let the church office know at 524-3289 so we can have a costume ready, then be at the church at 11:45 for dressing. There are no lines to learn.

This program celebrates the true meaning of Christmas with the portrayal and reading of the Nativity story and the singing of favorite Christmas carols. The program normally goes only 20 -30 minutes.
