Fellowship Bible Church Brings First Century Bethlehem Experience to Topeka

As the Christmas season approaches, Fellowship Bible Church has announced the return of their much-anticipated annual event, Bethlehem Experience. Taking place on December 8,9,10 and December 15,16,17, this immersive event invites the community to step back in time and witness first century Bethlehem in a way that engages all the senses.

“This Christmas, we want to experience the first-century world as we share the authentic Christmas story,” said Joe Hishmeh, Lead Pastor at Fellowship Bible Church. “Within our reenactment, people can see, hear, taste, and feel the world Jesus came into and connect to the story in a real way.”

Bethlehem Experience sets out to transport visitors to the streets of Bethlehem, providing an opportunity to witness the unfolding of the Christmas story in a truly immersive setting. Attendees will be surrounded by the sights, sounds, and even tastes of first century Bethlehem, creating an unforgettable experience for individuals and families alike.

“This year we will enhance our exhibits and focus on children engaging and experiencing the story through interactive projects,” said Hishmeh.

One of the highlights of this year’s Bethlehem Experience is a passport that each child will be given to begin their journey to Bethlehem. By the end of a tour, the passport will be filled with a collection of stamps from each location visited by families. This year, families can come together to not only witness but actively participate in the story of Christmas with a souvenir that will create a memorable experience for everyone who attends.
