First Church of God

Bethlehem Village December 12 & 13

The Monroe First Church of God will recreate the sights, sounds and activities of Bethlehem 2000 years ago for its regionally-acclaimed Bethlehem Village. The walking tour through the village is free and open to the public.
Upon entering, visitors will be given a few “shekels” to purchase small items from the many shops in the village. The potters, tent makers, bakers, leatherworkers and many other tradespeople will be happy to share information about their crafts.
Visitors may also encounter shepherds with their animals, Roman Centurions, and perhaps a beggar or two along the way. Joseph, Mary, and the baby Jesus can also be found in the manger. Read more »
