Living pageant tells Christmas story at Woodstocks Apostolic Faith campground

by: David F. Ashton Visitors – these kids are dressed for the living tableaus inside the Tabernacle – enjoy giving the camel a treat. Yes, a real live camel!

The 400,000 lights that decorate the Apostolic Faith Church Campground at S.E. 52nd Avenue at S.E. Duke in Woodstock is intended to delight neighbors who drive by - and the people who come to their 'Christmas on the Campground' celebration.

'In the past, we've held concerts in our church, across the street,' said their representative, Dan Walden. 'But, for the third year, we're holding this event in the campground. We're presenting the Christmas story.'

The event, held on the second weekend in December, featured a hayride, many decorated cabins behind the tabernacle, a petting zoo, and a live Nativity inside the Tabernacle, Walden explained.

'We've been here for many years, Walden commented. 'With this, we're reaching out to our local community to come enjoy the spirit of Christmas, and learn more about our church.'
