At this free event, visitors can see a re-enactment following the birth of Jesus.

After being welcomed with cookies and hot chocolate, visitors will meet Bethlehem artisans at work.

Shepherds tending their sheep will tell about the bright star in the sky over the town of Bethlehem. Visitors may pet the sheep and warm themselves by the shepherds’ fire.

The innkeeper and his wife will tell about an expectant couple who had to stay in their stable because there was no room in the inn.

Finally, visitors will see Joseph, Mary, and Baby Jesus in the stable alongside the donkey that brought them to Bethlehem and see angels rejoicing.

While there is no charge, the church is collecting donations for disaster relief for victims of the California wildfires.
