Journey to Bethlehem at Disciples Christian Church

Woodworker at Journey to Bethlehem

Disciples Christian Church will give its own Christmas gift to the community. On Sunday, Dec. 11, from 2 to 5 p.m., Disciples Christian Church will present Journey to Bethlehem, a free walk-through drama that recreates the sights and sounds of Bethlehem’s marketplace at the time of Christ’s birth.  

Before entering Bethlehem, participants will 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 approached by beggars. 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 sing along 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,
