Journey to Bethlehem

Narrators will walk with groups describing each of the nine live scenes set up outside the church.

Visitors are asked to dress for the weather. The last scene will be inside the church.

There will be luminaries, lights and music. Light refreshments will be served in the social hall.

The only admission "fee" is a nonperishable item that will be donated to Pleasant Valley Ecumenical Network (PVEN) for Christmas baskets to be distributed in the West End community. Monetary donations will be accepted as well to be given to PVEN.
