The evening starts with dinner provided by our school's PTL.  Then, families travel together through a Bethlehem marketplace and discover what life was like during the time of Jesus.  Unlike a typical "living Nativity" every child will create unique keepsakes as they interact with local shopkeepers who share the Christmas story.  Don't forget to stop by the stable and hear Mary and Joseph share the miracle of Jesus birth.  If your kids love VBS, then you won't want to miss A Night in Bethlehem!  This family event is free of charge but just like Mary and Joseph, you need to register!  Registration forms can be found in the church narthex or under the Resources tab on
