Live Nativity

We have a wonderful selection of animals perfect for telling the nativity story. The sheep are fluffy, the donkey is adorable, and the cattle are lowing!

The Live Nativity is a fantastic way for children to learn about the birth of Jesus! This option is very popular for Christmas Eve services or Christmas events. Shepherds with their Mini Donkey, Sheep, Goats and Mini Cow are included, but if you need more animals for Journey to Bethlehem events, we can work something out for you. We can set up in a variety of situations. We have brought animals for Journey to Bethlehem interactive drama, breakfast with Mary and Joseph, and A Night in Bethlehem. We can work with your program and are happy to jump in and help out! We do have the ability to set up the small nativity INDOORS for cold weather or rain. To learn more about the indoor nativity, click HERE. We travel FREE in the St. Louis area, and within 50 miles of our location.
