Evansville Church Hosts Drive-Thru Nativity

After having to cancel their drive-thru Nativity just before Christmas from the rain, one Evansville church decided to ring-in the New Year with the rescheduled event.

Over thirty masked children and church members handed out treats to drivers during a drive-thru style Nativity on Saturday night at the Methodist Temple UMC, located right by the University of Evansville on Lincoln Ave.


“The thing I celebrate most about this is it’s a safe way for us to continue to be a community,” said Pastor Andy Payton. “We’re doing virtual worship right now. So this is a way we can continue to do ministry in a safe way with the pandemic.”


The festivities lasted from 4 to 6 p.m. and included appearances from Mary, Joseph, Santa and even a sassy Rudolph.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
