Hundreds of people journeyed back through time to “witness” the birth of Jesus Christ at the Santa Clara First Baptist Church on December 6-10. Visitors watched as Joseph and Mary searched the city for a place to stay, only to be told there was no room at the inn. Eventually, they took shelter in the stable where the Savior was born. The event, now in its 15th year, continued the tradition of bringing in live animals for the multiple nightly shows and relied on over 100 volunteers to make the city of Bethlehem come to life in the church’s parking lot. Admission, as always, was free. Next year’s Bethlehem performances will be December 5-9, 2013. For more information visit www.bethlehemsc.com.
