Glen Mar is delighted that more than 3,200 guests attended our 2017 Walk to Bethlehem on Dec. 1, 2 or 3.
It was our pleasure to present the dramatic Biblical story of Mary and Joseph’s trip to Bethlehem, the birth of our savior Jesus Christ, and baby Jesus’ blessing in the Temple. We hope our guests enjoyed our bustling first-century marketplace as much as we liked creating it.
We are thankful for the more than 300 volunteers who made this event possible.
2018’s Walk to Bethlehem will take place on Nov. 30, Dec 1 & 2 from 5 - 8 p.m. If you have questions about Walk to Bethlehem, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
