The Nativity Experience: A Journey Through Bethlehem
Experience the story behind the Christmas season! Bundle the kids in the car and head to The Nativity Experience: A Journey Through Bethlehem at Suntree United Methodist Church on Saturday December 11 from 5:00 PM until 8:00 PM.
Volunteers will provide carfuls of onlookers with a live-action look at life in Bethlehem 2,021 years ago. Cars will wind their way through a series of lighted vignettes erected in the church parking lot at 7400 N Wickham Road in Melbourne, where costumed actors will depict scenes from the biblical birthplace of Jesus.
For an audio narration, families can scan a QR code with their camera app, or request a CD when entering the car line. The 15-minute "journey" will conclude with a stop in front of the nativity scene, complete with live animals. The Nativity Experience: A Journey Through Bethlehem is a free drive-through event, with donations accepted on behalf of Zoe Empowers, an organization that provides opportunities to vulnerable children in developing countries.
