The story of the birth of Jesus Christ came to life at First Lutheran Church in Alexandria Saturday.

The annual Living Nativity event featured key scenes and figures from the Bible, including the inn, the stable, live animals (including camels), the shepherds, the angels, wisemen and Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus.
