One of Fayette County’s most popular holiday events, “Walk through Bethlehem” at Fayetteville Christian Church, will start tomorrow night and will run through Sunday, Dec. 2, at the church on Hickory Road in Fayetteville. The program will run Thursday from 6-8 p.m., Friday from 6-9 p.m., Saturday from 3-8 p.m., and Sunday from 1-6 p.m.

Thirty-minute guided tours leave every 10 minutes. Admission is free.

Walk Through Bethlehem’s 2007 program features new drama and music, along with the hands-on village marketplace, a children’s favorite. Shepherds, wise men, Roman centurions and innkeepers — all are featured with amazing realism as they re-create key scenes from Jesus’ birth. Guests are invited to stay as long as they like in the village, interacting with artisans and shopkeepers, and making traditional toys, jewelry and pottery to take home as souvenirs. Visitors can also sample a variety of exotic, authentic foods.

“Our guests are always amazed when they enter Bethlehem,” says senior pastor Dan Roberts. “They can let go of all of the hurry and worry of the holidays, and spend a little time breathing in the spirit of the times into which Jesus was born.”

Fayetteville Christian Church is at 114 Hickory Road in Fayetteville, at the corner of New Hope and Hickory. Call 770-461-8763 for more information.
