If you need to rediscover a bit of Christmas magic this season, Calvary Lutheran Church is the place to be.

The church, located at 23 S. Prospect Street, is staging its tenth annual Live Nativity this Sunday, December 13. Nearly two dozen parishioners will appear on its grounds in elaborate, custom-made costumes to act out the Christmas story. They will be accompanied by a calf, sheep, goats, a donkey, and perhaps even a llama, all brought in from a farm in Lafayette, N.J. Many more members of the congregation will join with the choir in singing in the church sanctuary.

The Living Nativity is performed from 5 to 7 p.m., and performances are free.
