For over 40 years Clare United Methodist Church has held a Live Nativity 3 evenings prior to Christmas in front of their church. The last 3 years they have held it in front of Witbeck›s in Clare to share the miracle of Christ›s birth. The youth group had the joy of participating in the Live Nativity on Monday evening, December 23. The Clare United Methodist Church feels with all the hustle and bustle of the holidays this is one more way to put “Christ” back into Christmas and to share with others the true meaning of Christmas.
The Kunse family have been involved in the Live Nativity for over 30 years. This year they raised enough money to build a new Manger to house the Live Nativity. They hope that the tradition of the Live Nativity will continue on for many years to come.
