The Monroe City Christian Church Life Committee performed the presentation of a live nativity scene on December 16 in observance of Christ’s birth. The event started at 5:30 p.m. with five different presentations switching the characters playing the parts and the Christmas story played for all to hear with music.
This annual event is a popular activity for the community. Several members were seen driving by to admire the characters and animals as the Birth of Jesus was celebrated by believers in the Gospel. Some, despite the cold weather, parked their cars and came to view the scene on foot. The first nativity characters were Jamie Mudd as Joseph, Sabrina Mudd as Mary, Ayden Shortridge, Gavin Mudd and Grady Mudd as the Wisemen, Evan Shortridge and Michelle Shuck playing as the Shepherds and Logan Gosney, Skylar Gosney and Hayden West as the Angels.
