FAIRBURY, Neb. -- First United Presbyterian Church in Fairbury is hosting a Christmas celebration on Dec. 22 featuring the living creche. 

The gathering will feature live nativity, campfires, s'mores, carol sing-along and a hot cocoa bar. 

There will also be carols like oh holy night, sung by Kari Buchli and the evening will conclude with the singing of silent night. 

The event has historically been a hit, but hasn’t been done for the last eight to 10 years. Dave Conde, Ministry Coordinator, said they wanted to bring it back this year. 

“So what it is is a celebration of the Christmas season," Conde said. "We are going to have a hot cocoa bar, we have live animals and the nativity story will be told. We have a carol singalong that will not only some really famous Christian carols but also some secular fun carols as well. We wanted this to be an event that certainly celebrates the birth of Christ and tells the nativity story but also will appeal to those who, maybe, don’t have the same beliefs.”

The event will start at 6 p.m. and will last around an hour and a half.
