Join us for our 6th annual Bethlehem Experience and Live Nativity of Christ on December 7-9, 2018 @ Jenison Bible Church in Hudsonville, MI.
As you enter the church you will take a trip back in time and see the Bethlehem Marketplace as it was the year Jesus was born. You’ll register for the census and receive coins to make purchases as you travel through the busy streets. As you walk through the marketplace you’ll view the Roman soldiers, Scribes and Pharisees and towns-people busy with their daily activities.
After you leave Bethlehem you’ll take a Guided and Narrated outdoor tour of the Christmas story. You’ll hear from Isaiah as he prophesies of the coming Messiah. Watch Joseph and Mary as they learn that God has chosen them to raise the Christ child. See the Wisemen on their journey and watch the shepherds as the angels appear to them announcing the birth of the Savior of the world. Then visit the stable where you’ll find Mary and Joseph and the baby Jesus. You’ll pass by the cross where Jesus was sacrificed for the sins of the world and rejoice that the tomb where they laid him is empty, because Jesus rose from the dead defeating death and sin forever!
For those unable to walk through the outdoor nativity, we provide a trailer pulled by a quad.
After your tour come inside for warm drinks and snacks as the children enjoy Christmas crafts. It’s sure to be fun and memorable for the whole family!
Please dress for the weather.
