Take a "Journey to Bethlehem"
The public is invited to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the holidays for a “Journey to Bethlehem” at Church of the Redeemer United Church of Christ, 23500 Center Ridge Road, in Westlake from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, December 18 and Saturday, December 19. The journey is free and everyone is welcome.
For the 16th year, more than 50 members and friends of the Redeemer congregation will participate in this holiday tradition for area families. It is an interactive story of the Nativity featuring live animals, uplifting music, refreshments, and more! The 15-minute guided tours depart continuously throughout the evening from inside the church sanctuary. Traveling back 2,000 years, travelers meet King Herod, angels, shepherds, wise men, live sheep and a donkey along the way. The outdoor tour includes a brief visit with the Innkeeper and his wife and ends with a few moments at the manger with the Christ child. Cookies and beverages await travelers back inside the church.
