Darlington Presbyterian Church stages drive-thru Nativity

The pandemic didn’t stop Darlington Presbyterian Church from sharing the true meaning of Christmas, as the church staged a drive-thru nativity pageant on Sunday, Dec. 20. The event featured multiple scenes from the story of Christ’s birth, with live animals here and there for an extra touch of authenticity. Re-enactors donned costumes and took on the roles of Roman soldiers, Bethlehem merchants, King Herod, shepherds, the Magi, and the holy family gathered at the manger. Visitors could speak with the re-enactors from the safety of their vehicles, or simply drive along and observe the scenes.
