This holiday season, treat your family to a 3-D Christmas without the glasses!  We have now been ushering in the Christmas Season with families for over a decade!  As many as 8,000 area people have experienced this event in a single year!  Begin a family tradition as you step into the true story of Christmas, traveling back in time, and experiencing the people, places and circumstances that surrounded the birth of Jesus Christ.  Dress warm, because you’ll find it hard to believe you’re still in Oklahoma City when your mind is whisked away to another time and another place as you follow a guide couple on an OUTDOOR journey through a wooded area on the actual Church property.  This Journey will give you the experience of traveling for the census to the town of Bethlehem.  See over 300 people in costume as you encounter Old Testament Prophets, shepherds tending their sheep, the Wise Men from the East, marketplace vendors, and even other travelers.  Roman Soldiers will stop you along the way to be sure you are adhering to the rules.  Register for the census in Judea and witness the sights and sounds of the town of Bethlehem, including the Marketplace, the Inn, the Stable, and the Christ Child lying in a manger.  Your children will delight in the camels, donkeys, llamas, sheep, chickens, and many other LIVE ANIMALS!  Encounter the Christ Child in a way that will impact your family’s Christmas season for years to come.  This Christmas, don’t just read the story – come and be a part of it!At the conclusion of your Journey, enjoy hot chocolate and home made cookies in our Winter Wonderland!  Also, feel free to leave a prayer request on our special Prayer Tree.

Two paths are set up with the same scenes, so that we can accommodate two groups simultaneously.  This addition has helped lines move much faster by allowing many more people in the wooded area at a time. As usual, our parking directors will greet you immediately to help you find a convenient location.  The Sanctuary will host spectacular entertainment as you wait for your group to depart on the “Journey”.  Each year is a new experience waiting for you in “Bethlehem”!

There is NO CHARGE for this “Journey to Bethlehem”. The interactive tours and refreshments are FREE to all!  No tickets or reservations are required.  This is our gift to Oklahoma City and the area.  Tours will depart every two minutes from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. each evening, on December 5,6,7,8 2013, at Forest Hill Christian Church, 2121 N. MacArthur Blvd., Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.  For more information, please call (405) 495-0439  or visit  www.fhcc.org.
