The First Church of Coral Springs is set to host “Bethlehem Revisited,” a unique, interactive event that recreates the ancient city of Bethlehem as it may have appeared over 2,000 years ago.
Since 1993, this event has become a longstanding tradition of the South Florida Christmas season.
The First Church of Coral Springs presents a meticulously crafted representation of Bethlehem, complete with a walled city constructed from over 30,000 square feet of lumber. The event involves a large cast and crew of over 400 volunteers, offering visitors an authentic and engaging experience.
“Bethlehem Revisited is not a mere event; it is an experience,” said Senior Pastor Vidalis Lopez. “It brings the story to life. It awakens our sense of wonder, and it welcomes every person to walk through a meaningful experience that gives us hope and shows love at its best.”
Attendees can interact with characters portraying shepherds, sign a historical census, and wander through a marketplace reminiscent of the first century. The event’s highlight is the stable scene, symbolizing the birth of Christ.
Starting Friday, December 8, and running through Tuesday, December 12. Hours are Friday: 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., Saturday and Sunday: 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., Monday and Tuesday: 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
The event is family-friendly and open to all ages. While there is no admission fee, visitors can make donations at the conclusion of their journey through Bethlehem.
