One Night In Bethlehem Living Nativity

The history of statuary and living nativity displays has developed world wide since 1223 A.D. when St. Francis of Assisi is said to have staged the first nativity scene.  

For 19 years, members of the Church if Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Rochester Hills have been developing a nativity program that transforms their church building into the streets of Bethlehem.  

Your visit begins with a multi-denominational Christian concert in the chapel and continues as docents, in time period costume, guide you into rooms and down hallways prepared to take you into another time and space when shepherds witnessed angels, wise men travelled by starlight, inn keepers cared for weary travelers, and a manger cradled an infant who would change the world. 

For more information visit The event is free and open to the public.
