Forked River Baptist Church in Lacey Township will present its sixth annual ‘A Night In Bethlehem’ event Dec. 6-8. This free family-friendly event allows children and adults to participate in a hands-on authentic Christmas experience. ‘A Night In Bethlehem’ transforms the church into the streets of Bethlehem on the night that Jesus was born. Guests visit shops as they were in Biblical times, learn the history of the period, sample foods from the era and even meet Mary, Joseph and their new baby, Jesus.
The hours are 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, 6 to 9 p.m. on Friday and 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday. This is a drop-in event – reservations are not required and visitors can come for any length of time. There is no cost for this event.
