Holy Walk Through Bethlehem
November 30 & December 1 | 6 PM
Find yourself surrounded by the spirit of Christmas as you travel outdoors to Bethlehem of 2000 years ago to pay your taxes and be counted in the Roman Census. Hear the angels announce the birth of the Messiah. Listen as the shepherds, the prophet and the wise men talk of signs and wonders. Enjoy the city alive with activity, but with no room at the inn. Avoid the anger of the Roman soldiers and tax collectors. See a newborn babe asleep in a manger. Experience all this and more on the 2018 Holy Walk Through Bethlehem.
