The Women's Association and deacons of Forty Fort Presbyterian Church will display hundreds of nativity sets to benefit the Salvation Army Kirby Family House, Wilkes-Barre, a ministry for homeless families in the area. The display titled, No Room at the Inn, will be held Nov. 30, Dec. 1 and 2 at the church, located at 1224 Wyoming Ave. The display will be enhanced with special music from local musicians and will include family heirlooms and unique nativity sets from around the world. There will also be a basket auction and craft/ornament sale with proceeds going to the Salvation Army Kirby Family House. Volunteers from Huntsville Christian Church, Dallas, and Nebo Baptist Church, Nanticoke, will assist. Members of the community can have their nativity sets placed on display by contacting the church at 287-7097. There is no charge to attend. Donations will be accepted at Salvation Army kettles set up at different locations in the church.
