In its 36th year, ABCCM's Return to Bethlehem is the longest running Nativity production in North Carolina and is again graciously hosted at Groce United Methodist Church on December 6-9. Over fifty volunteer actors, dozens of local musicians, live animals, and many more come together to reenact first century Bethlehem under Roman rule which was the humble and culturally tense backdrop in which the baby Jesus was born. Return to Bethlehem is a gift back to the community from ABCCM's staff and its 280 member churches intended to make this a lasting Christmas tradition for all. If you would like more information about volunteering for this event please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join ABCCM at Groce United Methodist Church to experience the Bethlehem marketplace as it could have been during the time of Jesus' birth! This free, family-friendly event is a wonderful way to build excitement for the season as you experience the market stalls, Roman guards, the temple and even the manger where the Holy Child sleeps.
