After 23 years, Kingswood United Methodist Church will not present its Live Nativity this year, according to Rev. Joe Reams
Though Kingswood United Methodist Church's Live Nativity has been listed in some venues as occurring on December 12, Pastor Joe Reams said that, unfortunately, the 23-year tradition will not be happening this year. Citing a shortage of volunteers--the Live Nativity takes an enormous amount of manpower--Reams said that, regretfully, the Nativity will not go on this year but that he hopes the tradition will continue in 2016.
The event has been a favorite with Mobile area residents, who have driven through Bethlehem and the surrounding countryside for nearly a quarter of a century.
