Walk to Bethlehem Dec 10-12, 2014

Posted on November 6, 2014 at 11:30 AM

December 10, 11, and 12 – 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm


Celebrate the true meaning of Christmas and Walk to Bethlehem at Vista United Methodist Church. This is an interactive, family-friendly journey through ancient Bethlehem, occurring on the night Christ was born. Take a guided tour as we walk among village shops, meet and mingle with town residents, and encounter Roman soldiers. Guided tours begin every 10-15 minutes from 6:00pm through 8:00pm (Each tour lasts approximately 40 minutes).


Your journey will begin with hot cider and optional free family/group photos that will be emailed to you. As you travel back in time, imagine the small town of Bethlehem 2,000 years ago. Register your family with the census taker at the gate. As your guide explains the events of the day, observe the shepherds watching their flocks under the winter sky. Walk the crowded, narrow streets of the bustling marketplace. Beware of the Roman soldiers, pick-pockets and beggars. Talk with the vendors busy in their shops. Listen carefully and you can hear the villagers talk in excited yet hushed voices about a very special baby who’s just been born. As you and your guide follow the star, you, too, will find baby Jesus. (But don’t plan to stay overnight. The inn is full!) Enjoy snacks in the Hospitality Inn at the completion of your Walk. Tours are Wednesday through Friday, December 10-12 from 6 pm to 8 pm, and like the love of God, admission and parking are free. Canned food donations will be accepted on behalf of the Community Food Bank.


New this year, RESERVATIONS ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. In our ongoing effort to shorten the wait time for our guests, we have created a reservation system to help prevent long wait times.
