Step back in time, and journey through the village of Bethlehem as it might have appeared 2000 years ago. Meet residents of the village, learn about their trades, customs, and family life, and experience with them the oppression of Roman rule and the joyous hope of the promised Messiah!
This interactive walking tour of our Bethlehem village is Providence Baptist Church's «Christmas card» to Harrisburg and the surrounding areas. Each year, over a hundred volunteers work to create an engaging experience for visitors, who travel from near and far to experience this tradition each December. The guided tour through the village lasts about 45 minutes, arriving at a new stop every three minutes on average. Travelers are encouraged to respectfully interact with the village residents, asking questions they may have about their trade or customs. Upon completion of the tour, visitors can warm up in Providence's Family Life Center with apple cider, hot chocolate, and cookies!
Consider spending an evening with your family in Bethlehem this December!
