The Christmas Story: A Live Nativity Scene & Worship Experience

Baptist Temple Church is hosting a live Nativity Scene and Worship Experience entitled - The Christmas Story. Join us for fun and fellowship!




Baptist Temple Church (BTC) was founded in 1921 and is located in the heart of the Homewood community in Pittsburgh, PA.  The Church services the community through its weekly worship services and Bible study, as well as through annual events, such as Community Day.  BTC is creating a spectacular live nativity and worship experience that will highlight the intangible wealth of the people living in the area and the potential and power of the true and non-commercial story of Christ's birth to transform the hearts and lives of our neighborhood and the nation.

What We Need & What You Get

Baptist Temple Church has already matched the funds we are seeking to raise through the campaignHalf the battle is already won!  The Church is now requesting the support of its members and the local community to assist with the expenses of the experience.  These costs include the set construction, materials, equipment rentals and costumes.  

In addition to the free hot dogs and hot cocoa, we are going to be providing some great PERKS for folks who contribute to the project that range from t-shirts and mugs to walk-on roles right alongside the animals!

If we are unable to reach our goal, the funds will still go toward making the day the most successful and spiritually enriching experience we can make it.  We believe every need will be met and every person who comes will be positively impacted and transformed!

The Impact

  • Worship changes things!   We want to positively impact the lives of every person that attends this experience.
  • We are seeking to strengthen interdenominational, intergenerational and cross-cultural relationships within the City of Pittsburgh.
  • We will encourage our community not to “despise meager beginnings.”  The story of Christ will exemplify the story of a poor family that saved world.  The community of Homewood will be provided inspiration and encouraging words/depictions that prove all things are possible through Christ and the experience will confirm that greatness is often born out of dire circumstances.
  • We will highlight the importance of an interactive experience that is up close and intimate with live animals.  This experience will excite a new relationship between the community youth/families and these beautiful creatures.
