Every Christmas season, we present a live outdoor nativity pageant. It is our Christmas present to the Anderson community. We don’t charge any admission fees and we have free snacks and hot drinks available for our guests. This project takes the whole church to complete. All members who participate are blessed and energized by helping out with the pageant. Our pageant has been featured in The Herald Bulletin describing it as “A Holiday Tradition”.
The pageant started in 1975 by employees of the Laymen Life Insurance Company in Anderson. Maple Grove has been the home of the pageant since 1978. In 2013 and 2014, our sister church in Anderson, Main Street Church of God, assisted us with presenting the pageant.
