Walk Through Bethlehem
Fri-Sun, D
ec 1-3
Tours start at 6:30 pm and leave every 15 minutes to 8:30 pm

Follow  the star to the city of Bethlehem and celebrate the birth of Jesus! Experience the sights, sounds and smells of life in this tiny town as it hosts the greatest moment in history! Visitors will be assigned to one of the twelve tribes of Israel, issued credentials, given a “shekel” coin in order to pay Roman taxes, and ushered into our Sanctuary “holding area”  to enjoy Christmas music while they await the departure of their “tour.” Each tour will make its way through the interactive drama guided by an official representative of their tribe. As they travel through the town, the story of the birth of Jesus unfolds beautifully as participants are drawn deeper into the gospel narrative. The wonder at the song of the angels, the expectancy of the shepherds, the bustle of the marketplace, all lead to an eventual pause in front of the manger for the opportunity to say “yes” once again to Jesus. Refreshments will be offered at the end of each tour in Fuller Hall. Wheelchairs are not recommended; this is a walking tour, outside in the dark, on uneven ground. This event is free but you do need a reservation, as group size is limited.
