The Living Nativity 2011
In 2011 for the first time four churches along with Bigham Knoll came together to present a Living Nativity in order to share the true meaning of the Christmas season.

After months of planning and preparation 80-100 individuals from the churches combined their talents and gifts to present this three night event.

Over 4,000 people came and witnessed this dramatic enactment of the Christmas story.
