Live nativity scene returns to First Christian Church Dec. 13-16  

Hartselle’s First Christian Church is set to host its annual live nativity scene from Dec. 13-16 running nightly from 6-7:30 p.m. 

The tradition, upheld since 2017, has become a cherished event for the community. Lou Ann Stephenson, a dedicated church member, has been actively involved in organizing the event since its inception. 

Stephenson said the annual event symbolizes the true essence of Christmas, and church members consider it their ‘gift to the community.’ 

“We look forward to presenting this event each year,” she said. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to engage with the live portrayals and animals. 

“Children particularly enjoy interacting with the lambs and the donkey,” she added. 

New this year, Stephenson said there will be cardboard nativity displays that will be at the church through the end of the year for people to visit if they cannot make it to the live scenes next week.  

First Christian Church is located at 209 E. Main St., opposite the Hartselle Fire Department. Stephenson noted that free parking will be available for attendees behind the church building.
