MIDDLETOWN: ‘COME TO BETHLEHEM’
December 7, 2019, 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Westminster Presbyterian Church presents “Come to Bethlehem,” its annual Christmas gift to the community.
The Westminster campus will be transformed into Bethlehem to help visitors learn about the place of Jesus’ birth. In Harlan Hall, you’ll find the wool dealer, the spice dealer, the carpenter shop, Hebrew school, the food market, and the olive oil dealer. This year Bethlehem welcomes the stargazer to the village.
Children and adults are encouraged to interact with the villagers and participate in activities and crafts and sample foods reminiscent of Jesus’ time. Mary and Joseph will be arriving from Nazareth in time to join the crowd as they await the arrival of the Baby Jesus.
Just outside the Village (weather permitting), you’ll find the Live Animal Menagerie, the King’s Tent (complete with kings), games and toys for children and new this year, the temple of Jerusalem.
In the WPC Sanctuary, the Christmas stories from Matthew and Luke will be read, and there will be Christmas storybooks for younger children.
