Year after year the Messiah Project has placed nativity scenes around the Springfield Area.  This  outreach program has been highly supported by the McDonald’s restaurants which have allowed us to place the scenes at their locations, and by local businesses who have done the same.  However, the cost of repainting, repairing, and/or replacing these scenes has risen as we have added new locations.  Caring for and storing over 375 characters is a huge undertaking and, while volunteers have done a lot of the work, costs have risen as the size of the program has expanded.

We want to be able to continue the program, bringing “Jesus the reason for the  season,” to our community.  These scenes do not represent any one Christian denomination, but rather are truly an ecumenical outreach and we are asking you to participate in its continuation. 

Please, won’t you consider having your congregation join with others here in Springfield and make a contribution to the Messiah Project in support of this area wide ecumenical outreach project?  

In summation:

1        There is no organization or event that says “Jesus is the Reason for the Season” to more people than the Nativity Scene Project

2        There is no place on Planet Earth where McDonalds Restaurants are open and eager to making the statement, “Jesus is the Reason for the Season”.

We want to continue the program --but truly need your help.  Please go to the donor page and make your donation today.
