Bakersfield Hillcrest Adventist Church (CA) Project
“Walk Through Bethlehem” village is an outreach and evangelism effort of the Bakersfield Hillcrest Seventh-day Adventist Church, which provides a guided re-enactment of the first Christmas in Bethlehem. This yearly event draws approximately 5,000 local residents during two weekend showings in the month of December.
In the past, it has taken church members months to complete the construction of the set. Each Sunday, dedicated volunteers would gather at the church to steadily construct the frame, walls, and roof of Jesus’ birthplace. This year, the church has asked Maranatha to help. What normally takes them months will be completed in 10 days by a group of volunteers.
