Free Tickets to Bethlehem!

November 23, 2022 - You can take a trip to Bethlehem this Christmas and you don’t even have to leave Shelby County! First Baptist Center is recreating that “little town” in the green spaces beside their buildings. Waiting for you and your family are the shepherds (and their sheep), an 8-foot tall talking angel, the innkeeper, the magi, Mary and Joseph, and a man at the cross.

After your outside journey, you’re invited inside for hot chocolate, Santa, holiday photos, a Victorian Christmas village, and live holiday music. It’s all free. Groups of 25-50 will be leaving for Bethlehem every 15 minutes starting at 6pm thru 7:45pm on Saturday, December 10 and Sunday, December 11.

You can reserve free tickets by calling the church office at 936.598.5605 or David Mathis at 979.533.1575. Tickets can also be picked up at the church, 117 Cora, Monday - Friday, 8-5.

Come to Bethlehem!
