Members of the Scottdale Area United Methodist Youth Ministry will present the Second Annual “Live Nativity” Sunday from 5 to 7 p.m. and they are inviting the community out to come sing carols with them.

Participants will leave Christ United Methodist Church on Market Street and walk to the gazebo area where they will sing carols before continuing on to the Trinity United Methodist Church on Mulberry Street where the “Live Nativity” will be held.

Included will be biblical characters, live animals, carols, special music and a closing with “Candlelight Silent Night.”

Warming and refreshments will be offered in the Trinity United Methodist Church social hall.

The Rev. Kimberly King, pastor of the Scottdale Area United Methodist Youth Ministry, said the idea for the live nativity came out of the Trinity United Methodist Church.

“I think this allows the youth, as well as our community, to experience the true meaning of Christmas,” she said.

Janet Kaczynski, Trinity United Methodist Church communications coordinator, said that last year the event was scheduled for more than two hours.

“But it was a bitter cold that night and I think it was a little too long for the participants, so this year we've knocked it back to two hours,” she said, adding that it will probably remain at two hours annually.
