On Sabbath Dec. 16, 2023, the Mason City Church family participated in a Live Nativity. The church has been doing this for about 10 years now. It’s a great chance to invite friends and family and to show the community that we care and have a fun night together. Most importantly, it’s a chance to point people to Jesus during a season that is becoming more and more focused on everything besides Jesus. We had another great turnout this year, and we even made the front page of the Globe Gazette, our local newspaper!
