Are you feeling overwhelmed and exhausted from the seasonal madness and need a free event to take the kiddies and visiting relatives? For as long as anyone can remember, the First United Methodist Church of Santa Barbara has provided a free seasonal gift to the community by staging a re-creation of the Holy Night complete with live camels, sheep, goats and donkeys that have traveled all the way from Arizona just for this event. The community is invited to join in this inspiring and meaningful celebration – it’s free!
The Living Nativity will be held for 3 nights: December 21, 22 and 23rd from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. Warm cider and goodies will be served and free tours of the historic Sanctuary will also be available. The two-story Sanctuary built in 1927 Is open and decorated in seasonal finery with towering Christmas tree, bright red poinsettias and Christmas music softly playing to add to the “awe” factor.
The First United Methodist Church is located at the corner of Garden and Anapamu Streets, one block from the SB Courthouse. Parking is available behind the church with the parking entrance off Garden Street.
