Zion Lutheran Church live nativity scene going strong
RHINELANDER - Zion Lutheran Church didn't hold a live nativity scene for roughly 30 years. Last year, the event returned. In its second year back, the number of people involved has grown.

"We have a message of timely importance that is important for all people," said Zion Lutheran Staff Minister John Kanter. "We want to share with our friends and neighbors in Rhinelander."

The nativity will be the same as last year with live participants, live animals and even a choir. There is a slight change to the event, but it's an addition.

"After the nativity itself, we will have refreshments that will be served in our school and also here in church," said Kanter. "We're going to have a Christmas carol sing along. People can come into the warm and sing some more Christmas carols."

For people involved, the excitement is building for this unique event.

"I just think it's a really cool opportunity we get to share our message with the community," said Live Nativity participant Liesel Fiebke.

"It makes an opportunity for a family to do something special, something a little different each Christmas," said Kanter. "We know the Christmas story many of us, some of us may not know it as well. Here is an opportunity come see it presented."

Students say they are looking forward to doing this event with their friends this weekend. They will have brand new costumes as well.

"I'm really excited and a bunch of friends that are going to be in it are excited too to get to be an angel," said Fiebke.

Presentation times will be at 2, 3 and 4 PM Saturday. The church is located at 160 North Brown Street in Downtown Rhinelander. After the final showing, people are also encouraged to go see Lights of the Northwoods at Hodag Park.
