Group effort organizing live Nativity

FRANKLIN

Area churches, civic groups and organizations are combining efforts with a goal of reaching out ‘beyond the pews’ of traditional churches while sharing the Christmas story.

Organizers will sponsor a drive through Community Living Nativity from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Barrett’s Landing on Wednesday, Dec. 18 through Friday, Dec. 20.

Live music and refreshments will be served nightly. Spectators are invited to drive along Barrett’s Landing to see the scenes leading to the stable in Bethlehem where Jesus was born.
