2019 Concordia at Cabot Live Nativity Shares the True Meaning of the Season

December 17, 2019

Over 400 people visited the Cabot campus on Sunday to enjoy the seventh annual Concordia Live Nativity! The December weather was pleasantly mild, with only a chill in the air and no snow blanketing the ground.

NativityFBThree performances portrayed the birth of Jesus and between each show; we had Christmas cookies, hot chocolate and some great musical entertainment. Special thanks to St. Luke Lutheran School 3rd and 4th graders, Redeemer Lutheran School students, the Tri-Parish Choir, and Carol Kaltenhauser for playing, singing and leading the crowd in Christmas carols. 

The event included Concordia residents and staff members contributing in many ways: narrating, decorating, icing cookies, greeting guests, singing, acting and more!  A new addition for this year was St. Nicholas, who made an appearance in between performances. Special thanks to all the residents, staff and community members who made this another wonderful event. Also, a big thank you to our cast:

• Mary: Jessica Pyle

• Joseph: Michael Falbo

• Wise Men: Dave Gilkey, Eric Peat, Chris Nagg

• Shepherds/Shepherdesses: LuAnn Alexander, Fallon Franz, Luke Franz, Tony Geitgey, Cindy Perri

• Angels: Beth Bitting, Emily Bitting, Bailey Geitgey, Lahna Pyle, Ava Rossman, Ann Krafick, Grace Bicehouse

• Villagers: Connor Hagey, Wendy Recio

We would also like to thank the Saxonburg Fire Police for traffic control, Whitehall Presbyterian Church for their generous donation of costumes and props and our AMAZING staff and volunteers for their time and support throughout the event.

As the world celebrates Christmas, we openly proclaim the true meaning of this miraculous event. We offer thanks to God for sending his only Son, Jesus Christ. We wish you and your family a very Merry and Blessed Christmas!
