Eight years ago, Betty Simpson and Jennifer France had the idea to present Christmas nativity scenes using live performers from the congregation of the Browns Valley Christian Church. Eight years later the yearly event is going stronger than ever with well over 100 people pitching in to make this beautiful part of the holiday season special for everyone.
Special? Yes, because this is a drive-thru event held on the church grounds! Seven different biblical scenes are spread around the church drive-way so visitors can enjoy all the activities without leaving the comfort of their cars. The manger scene includes live sheep and lambs, a Hereford calf and a miniature donkey along with Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus. (No, baby Jesus isn’t a live baby. Considering the temperatures, that would be pushing it a bit!) All the actors work in half hour shifts to keep from getting too cold, and then head inside for hot drinks and friendship until their shift comes up again.
Load your car up with family and friends; this is an event well worth your time. This is one church that really gives back to its community! In past years the event has drawn over 100 cars over the two nights.
You can enjoy the live nativity a final time on Monday evening, Dec. 11 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The Browns Valley Christian Church is located at 9011 S. SR 47, Browns Valley, IN, just a few miles East of Waveland, IN. 
Question of the Week:

A little time has passed since the county commissioners brought planning and zoning back up. However, the emotions involved have not seemed to cool off yet. Readers overwhelmingly voted in favor of planning and zoning in an earlier poll and we want to see if anything has changed since then. So our question this week is do you support planning and zoning for Montgomery County?
