Journey to Bethlehem ~ Cairo United Methodist Church
Cairo United Methodist Church invites you to prepare for the coming Advent Season by joining us on a Journey to Bethlehem. Step back in time, as you join a family traveling from Nazareth to Bethlehem to be counted in the census. You will be provided some shekels for your journey as well as a tour guide to help you find your way. You may be stopped by Roman soldiers or approached by beggars on the street. Use your shekels to purchase items in the marketplace where you can interact with the street merchants, as well as taste food that is reminiscent of Jesus’ time. You may encounter wise men searching for the Christ child, shepherds tending their sheep, as well as camels and other animals surrounding the city. You will conclude your journey by visiting Mary, Joseph and the baby Jesus. As you return to the present time period, we hope you will have seen and felt the touch of God and will accept this journey as a gift to you from Cairo United Methodist Church. This year’s “Journey” dates are:
Friday, December 6th, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Saturday, December 7th, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Sunday, December 8th, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Invite your family and friends to open the holiday season by participating in this reenactment of the true gift of Christmas. Phone 270-860-8401 for more information about this event..
