Many have asked-“What kind of commitment is required to put on a Drive-thru nativity of this size?’  First the scene sets themselves require many hours and the talents of many folks.  They have to be removed from storage, inspected and repaired if needed.  They are then assembled, decorated and later disassembled and returned to storage.  This process begins in mid-November and isn’t concluded until early January.  
The actual presentation of the Drive-thru Living Nativity requires more than 150 people nightly for the 3 day run.  There are costume dressers, characters in various scenes, a kitchen crew to serve all those participating, traffic controllers, luminary attendants, and more. 
Unfortunately we are unable to have the Drive-thru Living Nativity this year due to COVID-19.  We are hopeful to be able to have this event in 2021.  We here at Ephesus feel that the Drive-thru Living Nativity is our gift to the community so we are disappointed that we are unable to bring this to the community this year.  We wish you Hope, Love, Joy and Peace during this advent season. 
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
