On Saturday December 12, we will join other churches in Santa Monica to setup and proclaim the birth of Jesus Christ through the Nativity Scene Display at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church property (14th Street & Maple Street, near Ocean Park Blvd. – Santa Monica). This will be the third year we have participated in the tradition of displaying the Gospels telling of Jesus’ birth. Our display is the Annunciation from Luke 1:26-33 and features the figures of angel Gabriel and Mary, who received the message that she would give birth to the long awaited Messiah. The figures in the display of both Gabriel & Mary were rebuilt and recast by Stan Lin, who captured the beauty and majesty of the encounter and is a tribute to his year-long work to bring a sense of reality to the scene. The Nativity Scene Display will officially open on December 13 at the opening ceremonies at Palisades Park (Ocean Blvd. near Arizona) taking place at 3:00 p.m. The Nativity Scene Display can be viewed between December 13, 2015 through January 6, 2016 at the Mt. Olive Lutheran Church location. Come and see!
