A Night in Bethlehem
Keep scrolling down for all the details, registration information, and FAQ's.
When: Saturday, December 9, 2017, 2-4 p.m.
What: A Night In Bethlehem will be an exciting family event to ring in and celebrate the Christmas season as we travel to Bethlehem to celebrate the birth of Jesus and celebrate that He came to save us!
The program will follow the general format of our marketplace VBS, but will be an event for the whole family! Families will be immersed into the culture of the day as they walk through the marketplace together, talk with shopkeepers who are curious about the birth of Jesus, and learn about life in Bethlehem. Families will also visit with Mary and Joseph in the stable and they will hear about the wonder and miracle of Jesus’ birth.
Where: Ambassador Presbyterian Church, 1010 Schieffelin Road, Apex
How Much: The family event is free and open to the community. An optional tax: a new unwrapped toy, or new/gently used winter clothing items (coat, hat, winter gloves or scarves), will be collected at the door.
