Our traditional Christmas gift to the community is our annual Night in Bethlehem
. This event is a free, family friendly evening featuring a tour
through the story of the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ, with a live nativity.
Besides sharing the "news of great joy" about Jesus Christ, we also provide a Christmas Workshop
for kids to make take-home crafts, a Christmas Café
all, and little gifts for the kids!
. As you wander through "O Little Town of Bethlehem"' we hope that you can step back in time and experience what life was
like over 2,000 years ago. Our goal is to turn your thoughts to the true meaning of Christmas
. See the light of that special star, feel the bustle of the Jerusalem
Market, hear the beautiful strains of the angel choir, and peek in on Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus in the stable.
Neighbors and visitors from the Lakewood Ranch area surrounding communities of all cultural backgrounds are warmly welcomed to share this magical evening with us!
