Local church hosts live nativity scene


A local church is taking a trip back to Bethlehem.

Real Life Church in Niles hosted a live nativity scene Sunday evening.

There was an enactment of the manger scene from The Bible, complete with live animals.

That includes camels, sheep and donkeys.

The Pastor says the congregation wants to share a message with the community.

"Kinda make people stop for a minute and realize what the reason for the season is. It's about Jesus. It's a big deal. It kinda brings the community together and I think it's a good event," says Jared Eckerley with Real Life Church.

It was a free event.

The church expected a big crowd.

Last year, about 750 people came out.
