The Nativity Ministry
Our Mission: To coordinate the building and display of Nativity Scenes in every neighborhood in order to glorify the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
The genesis of this project started in December, 2005 when Phil Monetti and his wife Pamela were on their morning walk. They had been discussing the variety of holiday displays that had no relevance to the birth of Jesus.
Then, like an oasis in the desert, they saw a wooden nativity scene on someone’s front lawn, knocked on the door, met the owner and inquired how he made it. He gave them the information to order the plans, which they did. Their friend John constructed it and they proudly displayed it on their front lawn as a witness to the true meaning of Christmas.
The following September, Phil suggested to his Church family they could hold a workshop to help members build their own nativity scenes to help people honor Jesus at Christmas. The Nativity Ministry was born. To date over 534 families have honored Jesus in this way. We invite you to join our growing ministry.
