Lafayette Living Nativity


What is the Lafayette Living Nativity?

The annual Lafayette Living Nativity (1990-Present)  is a dramatic representation of the major events related to the birth of Jesus Christ. Beginning with the biblical account of creation and ending with the prophecy of Christ’s second coming, 14 life-size scenes address the reasons for and result of our Savior’s time on earth. Involving a cast of hundreds, these scenes depict the significance of the baby in the manger and bring to life the message of salvation.

You can either walk or drive through the nativity. Those walking will hear the narration playing at each scene; those driving will be given a tape or CD to use during the drive-through.
