Glen Mar’s 2022 Journey to Bethlehem will be held Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, December 1, 2, 3, & 4 from 5 to 8 pm outside at the church, 4701 New Cut Road in Ellicott City, MD 21043.

Come to see and hear the wondrous story of the birth of Jesus Christ. Journey to Bethlehem provides the community a free spiritual and joyous experience at Christmastime. It is also inspiring, educational and entertaining.

You will walk or drive (depending on the night) through several outdoor scenes where actors (dressed as Mary, Joseph, the three wise men, Roman soldiers, shepherds, and angels) will enact the events leading up to and immediately following Jesus’ birth. Live animals add to the rustic setting.

Journey to Bethlehem is held in all types of weather, including rain, snow and extreme cold, but it could be canceled in the event of a major snowstorm. If the event is canceled, an announcement will be posted on Glen Mar’s website and Facebook page.
