Journey to Bethlehem

What it is

Experience the journey Mary and Joseph took to Bethlehem 2,000 years ago through dramatic indoor vignettes, and an outdoor, candlelit dramatization of the Christmas story.

When It is

Plan on attending this year's "Journey," through multiple 1-hour tours given each evening, followed by refreshments. Admission is free. Note: This is an indoor/outdoor event - please dress accordingly.

December 2nd (7:00-9:00 pm)
December 3rd (5:00-8:00 pm)
December 4th (5:00-8:00 pm)

What to Expect

Your "Journey" starts with a brief dramatic presentation of biblical prophecy, explaining why the Messiah was to be born. You will then travel back in time to a carpenter's shop in Nazareth, where you receive traveling papers for your journey and join with a family of Jews who, like Mary and Joseph, must travel to their hometown of Bethlehem for the Roman census, encountering many sites, sounds, and people along the way. Your journey culminates at a stable where Jesus has been born! Here travelers discover the baby Jesus is God's promised Messiah, and that He is the Savior and the true giver of life and peace to all who believe in Him.

Join the Journey

Each year we seek to reach our friends, neighbors, and community to share with them the joyous reason to celebrate this season. We spend time gathering props, costumes, animals, and people to bring to life before your eyes the rugged, inspired journey that a pregnant Mary and dutiful Joseph made over 2000 years ago as they carried with them the Son of God. We diligently stir the hot cocoa and bake copious amounts of festive cookies and eagerly await a time to dote on our often chilly but very content sojourners as they come in from their journey. We hope that during this Christmas season you will share the true meaning of Jesus' birth and remember His gift to you.
