An immersive experience with a live-action set depicting the biblical story of the birth of Jesus Christ returns this holiday season.
Hosted by the Hermiston Seventh-day Adventist Church, Journey to Bethlehem features 20-minute guided tours through an outdoor village. Actors will depict characters from the Bible and the scenes include live animals.
It opens Friday, Dec. 1, 5-8:30 p.m. on the church’s grounds, 855 W. Highland Ave., Hermiston. The program continues nightly through Dec. 3. It recreates the sights, sounds and smells of a bustling market during biblical times.
A different musical program is presented each night while visitors wait to join a tour. Also, refreshments will be served.
The event was paused while the congregation focused on constructing a new building — and then the pandemic hit. It resumed in November 2022.
