“A Night in Bethlehem” Comes to Yardley for Christmas Eve
This Advent season, Woodside Church has been breaking down misconceptions with “The Advent Conspiracy” and spreading love through acts of service. This message series focuses on Hope & the real Reason for the season, what can happen when we spend less needlessly, give to those in need, and express love to all people.
Woodside Church invites everyone to join in the celebration of Jesus’ birth with “A Night in Bethlehem”, a fun, immersive experience for the whole family on Christmas Eve.
“A Night in Bethlehem” is a chance for the local community to explore and re-discover the real Reason for the Season! This family-friendly event is a free 1-hour immersive experience where kids & their families can explore faith and the city at the time of Jesus’ birth. All are welcome (always!) Through hands-on experiences they’ll find out about The Child that changed the world forever. This special event is a children’s worship service that will be a one-time only event that starts at 1:30 PM on Saturday, December 24, 2022.
Stephanie Hermesmeyer, Director of Woodside’s Children’s Ministry talks about this unique Christmas Eve service format “We want every family to know what Christmas is really about. How much God loves each and every one of us, that He sent us the most precious Gift–Jesus!”
Families new to Woodside are encouraged to reach out to the Children’s Ministry for more information.
