Enter into the peace of a certain cool winter's night when while there were Shepherds watching their flock by night"
Jesus came. The sheep flock at Shepherd's Cross will be lying near by in the fields.
Open the door, and step back in time to that first Holy Christmas.
This event is held in a heated Amish barn & silo, at an authentic working farm.
Live character portrayals include Mary, Joseph, the shepherds, the wise men and angels.
The stable will be filled with live animals, and there is opportunity to interact with them.

the time came for the baby to be born,

placed Him in a manger because there
was no room for them in the inn."
