Bethany Lutheran will present ‘Christmas Journey’ Dec. 13-14
Bethany Lutheran Church will present “A Christmas Journey” from 6-8:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday evenings, Dec. 13-14, at the church.
“A Christmas Journey” tells the Christmas story in a drive-through setting located along Town Creek, behind the church.
The 10-minute drive-through presentation features special lighting, music and effects, live characters, animals and professionally hand-painted props.
Scenes include the prophet foretelling the birth of Christ, the annunciation of the angel to Mary, the decree of Caesar, the journey to Bethlehem, the innkeeper denying lodging, the angels proclaiming his birth to the shepherds, the manger scene, the presentation of the child to Simeon and the journey of the Magi.
From 6-8:30 p.m. both nights, cars will be greeted by volunteers who will cover their headlights and then guide them to the tour’s start.
Cars will initially line up on Schubert Street, turn right onto Adams Street and then take another right into Bethany Lutheran Church’s back parking lot. Cars then follow the lighted pathway through the Journey.
People on both sides of the vehicle will be able to view the scenes.
For those who don’t want to drive through the nativity in their own vehicles, Bethany will be offering trailer rides through the event. Trailers will be located at the entrance.
People may also board the Bethany bus which stops in front of Marktplatz on Main Street.
There is no admission charge. For those who would like to make a freewill donation, monies will be given to the Fredericksburg Food Pantry.
