Jenison Bible Church is hosting our 5th annual Bethlehem Experience & Live Nativity. This year we've added the Bethlehem experience while you wait indoors for your tour of the Nativity.
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!
After the tour, come inside for warm drinks and snacks while the children enjoy special Christmas crafts. It's sure to be fun and memorable for the whole family.
Looking forward to seeing you:
Friday, December 8, from 6:00 - 8:00 PM
