Take a Journey

Journey to Bethlehem is a free, ticketed event for the whole family. In this live nativity journey, you’ll follow your trustworthy guide through the streets of Bethlehem, the shepherd’s pastures, and ultimately to the stable housing God’s greatest gift to us all. Come early to enjoy live music or even a movie while you wait. Concessions will also be available. We’ve got hot dogs, chips, cookies, and drinks. All proceeds will help support upcoming youth missions trips.
