For the last seven years, Riverside Community Church in Machesney Park has been providing the Rockford area with a free Christmas gift...a live drive-thru nativity scene!

This has become a beloved holiday tradition for thousands of families, and it will be happening next Saturday and Sunday, (December 8 and 9) from 6 to 9 p.m. at Riverside Community Church at 6816 N Second St.

This drive-thru live nativity features 6 different scenes depicting the story of Jesus' birth complete with live animals and characters, and I know your family will love it.

For more information, visit Riverside Community Church on Facebook or call 815-877-4444.
