Walk Through Bethlehem – December 6 and 7
“Walk Through Bethlehem” will be held on December 6 and 7 from 7:00-9 :00p.m. This is a feast for the senses with a Biblical street scene, festive Jewish music, fresh unleavened bread at the market, exotic spices, and costumed village merchants in their stalls. The highlight, of course, is meeting Joseph, Mary and baby Jesus in the stable, just moments after the glorious Messiah’s birth.
All are welcome to this event. Tours begin in the sanctuary every ten minutes and while you wait your turn, Pastor Bill and friends will serenade you with music of the season.
A free will offering will be taken. Proceeds will benefit the Drama Ministry.
