St. Mark's 1998 Living Nativity

Beginning in the 1980's, St. Mark has celebrated Christmas with the community through the Living Nativity. The Living Nativity is a reenactment of the birth of Jesus by people dressed in beautifully crafted costumes as Mary, Joseph, Wise Men, Shepherds and Angels. Those participating, stand in a stable erected in the church parking, with others acting as greeters.

This year, the Nativity was held on the evenings of December 18th and 19th. The following are highlights of the two nights.

Although it is not directly related to the Living Nativity, St. Mark's sanctuary was open for visitors to enter and view the beautiful Christmas decorations.



This year, St. Mark was blessed with many volunteers to "act" in the Nativity, which allowed us to switch characters every 30 minutes on the two cold nights.


The Living Nativity gives St. Mark the opportunity to meet with those that stop by and share the real meaning of CHRISTmas with them. .


Those, who stop always comment how much they enjoy it! This is a great way to reach out with the Gospel to our neighborhood.


As already stated, St. Mark was blessed this year with many volunteers to help spread the Good News that Christ was born in Bethlehem as our Savior from our sins.

Although for most, the Christmas celebrations have been completed, St. Mark reminds all that the Christmas Story should live with all of us throughout the year.

St. Mark welcomes all to celebrate the Good News of Christ's birth and ministry to save all of us from eternal damnation and to welcome us to His side for eternal life!


St. Mark offers many activities for all age groups, including Sunday worship, Bible class and Sunday School. For further information, call St. Mark at (408) 736-6605. In addition, you can find more information on our web site by clicking here!
