Journey to Bethlehem at Disciples Christian Church

Disciples Christian Church will present  a Christmas gift to the community on Sunday, Dec. 13. from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., with Journey to Bethlehem, a walk-through drama that recreates the sights and sounds of Bethlehem’s marketplace at the time of Christ’s birth.  

Before entering Bethlehem, participants may have an audience with King Herod and then be counted in the census. Once in Bethlehem, they can interact with street merchants and view some animals. Watch craftsmen at their work and be prodded along by Roman guards. Listen while townspeople, shepherds and other biblical characters set the stage for the discovery of the newborn baby in the stable. As participants wait their turn to enter Bethlehem, they will be entertained by the No Strings Attached puppets, listen to music performances and participate in a Christmas carol sing-along.

Disciples Christian Church is located at 3663 Mayfield Road (at Yellowstone across from Severance Town Center) in Cleveland Heights.

For more information, call 216-382-5344 or visit the church’s Web site at

Ron Werman is a Cleveland Heights resident and member, elder, choir member and communications chairperson of Disciples Christian Church.
