Bring your family or come alone to experience the thrill and excitement of the Birth Story of Jesus over 2000 years ago. The story of Christmas comes to life through this simple yet poignant outdoor production in the front parking lot of the Bryson City United Methodist Church.

Complimentary doughnuts, hot chocolate and apple cider will be served in the fellowship hall.

Additionally, we will have free story and coloring sheets for the children telling the story of our Lord’s birth.

For locals, come in through the Academy Street entrance beside the Restoration House.

If you’re not familiar with the area, when coming from the Hwy 74 (4-lane hwy), take Exit 67 onto Veterans Blvd, then turn right just past Bojangles onto Academy Street. Go about 100 yards and turn left just before the Restoration House.

If you are coming from town or you can turn off Main Street, onto Rector Street, then turn right onto Academy Street. Go about 200 yards and turn right just after the Restoration House.
