Walk Through Bethlehem is an outdoor drama event that is offered free to our community during the Christmas season. We have been able to use this ministry for the glory of God since 2002 when it first began. It has been made possible thanks to hundreds of volunteers at our church.
The Walk Through Bethlehem set is a 22,000 square foot city that takes over three months to construct. Men give up their Saturday mornings to build the city. Several ladies in our church have sewn hundreds of authentic-looking costumes. The city includes several streets, twenty-three shops, four hundred costumed characters, hundreds of volunteers, and over 100 live animals, including two camels. In 2002 we had no idea of what to expect as far as attendance, or if anyone would come. We had 4,000 attend in the beginning, and it has only grown since with about 8-10,000 every year.
Each year it seems that God sends us more people to meet and to introduce to our Savior. What is significant is that we are able to give every person that attends the opportunity to hear about the Christ of Christmas and why He came. Walk Through Bethlehem is only an experience, but having a relationship with Christ is something that lasts forever. The experience will not change you, but Christ will!
The Lord has truly blessed this ministry, and we look forward to the blessings He will bring this year as we take another Walk Through Bethlehem.
See you there!
There is no charge, and donations are not accepted. This is our gift to the community. Merry Christmas!
