Living Nativity

Brooke Tillman-Sievers, along with her husband Scott and one of their sons, make First Lutheran's Living Nativity an annual event.

(Alexandria, MN) Each year, hundreds of people take time from their busy schedules to journey to the manger to witness First Lutheran’s re-creation of the miracle of Christmas. On Saturday December 3rd, the Living Nativity featured live camels, donkey and sheep to show how the stable may have looked that first Christmas Eve. Shepherds directed you to the Nativity Scenes as you drove through in the warmth of your car. The Alexandria church members brave the winter elements each year in their portrayal of the Holy Family, the Shepherds, Wise Men, and Angels! All were invited to come and experience the true meaning of Christmas.
