Every year Sequoia goes all out to present a visual presentation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ at Christmas. The church parking lot at 1050 S. Union Rd. in Manteca (see the map on the right) is transformed into a drive through stage where the Bible is depicted from the birth of Christ to His death and resurrection. A CD is given to each vehicle entering the living nativity scenes with explaination of each scene that appears as the vehicle drives through the setup. Each scene is life size with real actors in costume and backdrops to give a very "authentic" feel to the presentation. The entire presentation is free. This is Sequoia Heights Baptist Church's Christmas gift to the community.
The entire church is involved as actors, setup, cleanup, child care, reception, or traffic control. Pastor Mark Mahaffie is on site every year to meet and greet every vehicle that drives through. Come and load up your car and visit a truly remarkable presentation of the Gospel.
The living nativity is presented only 2 days each year. This year it will be December 8 & 9, 2017 from 6:00PM to 8:00PM.
