Walk Through Bethlehem


*Walk Through Bethlehem
is Grace Baptist Church’s gift to the city of Bowling Green and all the surrounding counties at the Christmas season each year.  This live event has over 60 individuals in costume and includes several live animals.  Upon arrival, visitors are welcomed outside the city of Bethlehem by the tax collector, Roman soldiers and Mary and Joseph.  The guests follow a sawdust trail into the city where they can interact with the characters and get a feel of maybe how it was like that first Christmas night.  The trail then leads to the shepherd’s fire where the shepherds watch over the sheep in the field.  Christ’s birth is announced by the heavenly host in beautiful fashion, and just down the trail the guests will find the traditional manger scene.  The presentation concludes in the heated hospitality tent where hot drinks and cookies are served.   All guests are invited to have a seat and enjoy the Christmas carols, special music and character sketch.
