The performance is under 30 minutes and takes place outdoors – featuring music, dancing, live animals, authentic sets, and special effects.  Afterwards, everyone is invited inside (where it’s warm) for complimentary refreshments, live entertainment, our crackling open-hearth fireplace, and beautiful decorations -AND- to register for our 2nd annual Abingtons Christmas Giveaway!

About The Live Nativity

Over 2,000 Years Ago, in a small Middle Eastern village, an event took place that would change our world... forever.


The Live Nativity Of The Abingtons is an annual tradition in Clarks Green, PA that celebrates the birth of the Christ child, through a LIVE reenactment & portrayal of the events surrounding His coming.

It features exquisite costumes, realistic props, professionally produced narration & soundtrack, national level singers, choreography, and LIVE animals.

Directions, Parking, & How To Dress

Directions

The Live Nativity is hosted on the grounds of Clarks Green Assembly of God Church, located at:

204 S. Abington Rd., Clarks Green, PA 18411 (click for Google Maps)

For additional information, you may directly contact Clarks Green Assembly at 570-586-8286... even during the nights of the performances.

ON-STREET AND LOT PARKING

Limited parking is available in the Clarks Green Assembly lot. There is on-street parking available on the surrounding streets of the hosting church - namely Hall Avenue, Venard Road, Clark Street, and other neighborhood roads within 2 blocks.

You may also park in the lot of the old CVS Pharmacy, on the corner of Hall Ave & South Abington Blvd.  This lot is only a half block away from the performance!

How to dress

We're a LOT like the U.S. Postal Service... in that the Live Nativity will "go on" come "rain, sleet, snow" - or in this case, cold temperatures.  Because we cannot predict the weather, it's hard to make definitive recommendations.

But especially in sub 4o degree weather, gloves and a heavy winter coat are always in order.  If it is windy, you may want to consider wearing a scarf and hat.  These are especially indicated for children under 12!

From introduction to closing thoughts, the Nativity will last no more than 30 minutes.  Then you will be invited inside for the Post-Nativity Celebration.  Quite the extremes of temperature!  Once inside, we will have a designated area for coats, gloves, and the like (if you so choose).


Donation Opportunities!

Each year, it takes MANY volunteers to successfully stage the Live Nativity production - a real community of people who cherish the message of Christmas, and are willing to sacrifice of the time & talents to make it happen for the benefit of us all.

It also costs thousands of dollars to produce each year... especially with our ever-increasing annual attendance!

As such, there are MANY ways for you to come along side of us this Christmas Season!  We humbly ask you - the cherished members of our residential & business communities - to consider prayerfully how you can partner with us - whether volunteering your time, baking or decorating talents, or (of course) your financial support.

Time, items, or non-cash contributions

Many have been asking how they can become involved... It's EZ!  Simply email or call the 2016's Nativity & Giveaway Coordinator Pastor Michael Warner from Clarks Green Assembly at 570-586-8286.  We'll plug you in!  We're also excited to accept Giveaway gifts from community businesses.
