"A Night In Bethlehem"
Sunday, December 4th.
Is the town of Bethlehem the night Jesus Christ was born. Joined the shopkeepers in making goods, tasted the yummy candy and delicious bread, and viewed the artisans working their craft.   Celebrated the beginning of Advent in a unique way you won’t soon forget!
The organization and commitment enabled us to accommodate many visitors from our own congregation as well as from the Michigan City community. What a beautiful way to celebrate and anticipate the birth of our Savior!
