Oakland Christian Church, 149 Oakland Church Rd., Pendleton County, will host a ‘Walk Through Bethlehem’ this holiday season.

The trip will take you on an outdoor adventure to first century Bethlehem on the night Jesus was born.

Journey through the heart of the city to the marketplace that is bustling with activity at authentic shops; enjoy samples from the baker’s shop, marvel at the potter’s crafts and listen for the rumor of a king’s birth from the townspeople. Beware of the Roman soldiers. They are looking for an excuse to arrest someone.

Make a stop at the Inn, and the Synagogue, and then venture to a moonlit field where shepherds are watching their sheep and hear angels singing. Continue your journey to the Nativity where a special baby was born in the stable. Meet Mary and Joseph, see royally robed Magi and hear how they journeyed from far away in search of this heavenly King. Finally, your journey will end at the cross where you’ll meet Nicodemus and an angel as they proclaim the “reason for the season.”

“Walk Through Bethlehem 2009” is Oakland’s holiday gift to the community.  Oakland invites everyone to come and discover the real side of Christmas.

Prior to the tour, you will meet in the sanctuary and listen to special guest singers. This event will be held Nov. 28 and 29 and Dec. 5 and 6 from 5-8 p.m. each evening, and remember to dress warmly. For more information contact the church at 859-654-6174 or 606-782-0930.
