Journey to Bethlehem

Joseph, Mary and baby Jesus

Disciples Christian Church will give its own Christmas gift to the community. On Sunday, Dec. 12, from 2 to 5 p.m., Disciples Christian Church will present 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, as well as view some animals. They can watch craftsmen at their work and be prodded along by Roman guards. They can 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 or singalong to Christmas carols.

Disciples Christian Church is located at 3663 Mayfield Road (at Yellowstone Road, across from Severance Town Center) in Cleveland Heights. For more information, call 216-382-5344 or visit,

Ron Werman is an elder of Disciples Christian Church.
