For the past 27 years, the First Church of the Nazarene's Drive Through Living Nativity has been a part of the Christmas tradition in Big Spring. It began with seven scenes and has grown over the years â€“ with 14 on view this year.
For the people at Spring Tabernacle Ministries, the real joy of the Christmas season is found in giving, rather than receiving, presents.
Spring Tabernacle, located at 1208 Wright St., will hold its 18th annual Christmas gift give-away beginning at 9 a.m. Friday and continuing for as long as toys and other gifts last.
Parents of children ages 2 to 12 may receive up to four gifts per child during the event, Minister Mona Lue Tonn said.
For more information on the give-away, contact Tonn at 263-0544.
