Volunteers are needed to take part in the 3rd Annual “The Wondrous Gift,” a live nativity held in Wellington.
This year’s event will start at 5 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 26 when actors portraying Mary and Joseph will arrive in the village looking for a place to stay for the night.
Finding none, they will travel through the town to McCormick Park where, at 6 p.m., they will celebrate the birth of Jesus with the community.
The new venue will allow for increased seating and space for the production.
Several churches will be involved, with pastors playing shepherds; mayor Hans Schneider, police chief Tim Barfield, and fire chief Mike Wetherbee as magi; and servants to the magi played by Boy Scouts. The choir will include singers from all over Lorain County.
More than 150 people were involved in last year’s event, which also involved live animals. Volunteers also helped with stage lighting, sound, and costumes.
This year, organizers plan to have more than 200 people involved.
To be an actor or member of the choir, call Darlene Neptune at 239-398-0030 or Jan McClaflin at 330-636-6713.
