Bethlehem Village

My Church, Georgetown Church of the Nazarene, has sponsored  Bethlehem Village as part of the annual Georgetown Christmas Stroll for the past nine years.  Being a woodworker with a sawmill, I was approached to build the stable and manger as well as many tables and stools for each of the shops.  Naturally I volunteered to lead  the Carpenter's Shop.  It is a LOT of fun plus a great community outreach project.  Each year more and more people come through and in 2015, we saw over 25,000 people visit us.  It is held the first Saturday of December and the Friday night before.    The following pictures show some of the Carpenters Shop activities as well as a few of the other shops and scenes.   This link will take you to the Bethlehem Village Facebook page (copy and paste) for more information  https://www.facebook.com/BethlehemVillage2012/

The 2018 Christmas Stroll and Bethlehem Village were held November 30 , 5-9PM and Saturday December 1, 10 AM to 8 PM.   Approximately 27000 people came through Bethlehem so it was quite a success.
The 2020 Christmas Stroll has been canceled due to Covid19.  So--mark your calendars for December 3 & 4 2021and join us!
