Huntsville, Ala. (WHNT) — First Baptist Church’s performance of the Living Christmas Tree is back for its 31st year.

Saturday, December 19th we’ll air a live performance on WHNT2 from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. WHNT2 is available on Comcast 1008, Knology 199, Charter 193, Mediacom 80 and through an over-the-air antenna.

You can also watch the live broadcast here on

We’ll also re-air the broadcast on Christmas morning from 4:30 to 6:00 a.m. in place of WHNT News 19 This Morning.

The choral presentation is different every year and draws a large crowd every time. More than 200 singers, instrumentalists and technicians prepare for months to learn the parts and perform for the community. The event is free, but the church is often packed with people wanting to see it in person.
