Joy Ranch to Hold Annual Live Nativity December 10, 2022

We bring you good tidings of great JOY from Joy Ranch, a Christian Home for Children! We are happy to announce we will still hold our annual drive-thru Live Nativity on Saturday, December 10 from 6-8 pm. This is a FREE, family-friendly event where spectators will stay in their vehicles while driving through the beautifully decorated Joy Ranch campus viewing scenes from the story of Jesus Christ’s birth as well as amazing Christmas light displays.

While supplies last, each vehicle will receive a special gift from Joy Ranch and there will be special gifts for the children. The Live Nativity is our way of saying “thank you” to the community who supports us so generously.

Joy Ranch, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, has been serving children in need since 1961. Our mission is to provide a safe, caring, and Christ-centered home to meet the spiritual, physical, emotional, and social needs of children in crisis. Since then, we have loved approximately 6,000 children.

Please plan to join us at 813 Joy Ranch Road in Woodlawn, VA as you view scenes from the true Christmas story from the safety and warmth of your vehicle. For more information, please visit or call 276-236-5578. View the Facebook event at
