Southern Hills Methodist Church has been bringing the Christmas story alive for 18 years - literally! If you haven't experienced the Living Nativity yet, put it on your schedule this year!

You can see it and be a part of a wonderful Christmas tradition this Friday and Saturday from 6:30 to 9:00 PM both evenings.

Southern Hills Church is at 3400 E. 49th in Sioux Falls (near the intersection of Southeastern Avenue and 49th Street, next to the Ronning library). They'll have hot cocoa, hot apple cider and cookies for you to sip and munch on in the church, while you listen to Christmas carols being sung. So, bring the kids, the family, your friends and neighbors, and- -your camera!

Admission is free but Southern Hills is collecting toiletries for the Kidz Count Outreach program. So if you could bring a spare toothbrush, tube of toothpaste, package of toilet paper, soap or liquid soap, deodorant or other items, you'll really be helping and participating in the true meaning of Christmas.
