We anticipate the next Live Nativity will be on December 8-9, 2023


It is with great regret that we are not holding the Live Nativity this year.

We are diligently working to make the Live Nativity more sustainable for us to continue into the future. This summer we have completely replaced our parking lot and parking lighting and plan to improve the walking pathways of the Live Nativity. Our biggest improvement is housing the Live Nativity supplies in a storage area we would like to construct on the rear of our church building in the spring. You are welcome to contribute here to this as someone who knows the impact it has on our community for the Gospel's sake!

We are inviting people who appreciate our Live Nativity outreach to partner with us and consider becoming part of our church family. Valley View is a unique, smaller church that encourages our entire church membership to serve together as one big church family to proclaim the good news about Jesus our Lord and Savior through the Live Nativity. Serving together in the Live Nativity and similar ministries helps us to love one another and live the Gospel as we graciously love and forgive our brothers and sisters. We love working together for the sake of the Gospel and are a church that is so much more than showing up on Sundays for an hour. Through serving together, we get to know one another and develop strong friendships to last a lifetime. We welcome people like you to consider joining our church family.


Our most important, regular gathering is every Sunday at 10:45 AM when we worship the Lord together and grow in Christ through praising, singing, praying, and hearing God's Word be faithfully preached and taught to feed us. Ultimately, together we worship through spiritual growth and serving together! You are most welcome to visit us any Sunday at 10:45 AM. We also begin the mornings with Bible classes for further growth at 9:30 AM.

Live Nativity

The Live Nativity is an outdoor experience that will immerse you in the sights and sounds of the very first Christmas. You will meet Isaiah the prophet, Caesar Augustus, King Herod, the Magi, and the shepherds. Your journey will lead you through the busy Bethlehem market to see Mary and Joseph with the baby in the stable. You are encouraged to dress warmly for our outdoor Ohio weather. The Live Nativity is handicap and baby stroller accessible. Your Live Nativity journey will be approximately 20-30 minutes outdoors.

Invite your family and friends to share the Christmas story with you!
