A walk through Bethlehem to the birthplace of Jesus Christ Friday December 1, 2017 (6:00 - 8:30pm) and Saturday December 2, 2017 (1:00 - 3:00pm & 6:00 - 8:30pm) SCENES ALONG THE WAY MARKETPLACE Begin your travel through Bethlehem in the town marketplace. There you will encounter and interact with a variety of vendors, live animals, villagers, and Roman guards. THE CENSUS TAKER AND TAX COLLECTOR As Mary and Joseph wearily arrive to Bethlehem after a 3 day journey, they urgently need to find a place to stay. Their encounter with the Census Taker and Tax Collector is met with realities of the Roman order of the day in Bethlehem. SHEPHERDS, ANGELS, AND THE ELEMENT OF SURPRISE As the day comes to a close, you will come across very excited shepherds who received great news while watching over their flocks by night. What great news was this and how many angels make up a host? THE STRESSED OUT INNKEEPER You have gone through a long day of travel, so it's about time to find somewhere to spend the night. You'll check with the local innkeeper to hopefully find a place to stay. THE NATIVITY Here you will have the opportunity to marvel at the conditions of this amazing birth. Music, drama, and spoken word will help to inspire, celebrating this Christmas season. LEARN MORE ABOUT US Christmas in Courtice is brought to you by Trulls Road Free Methodist Church.
