The Living Nativity & The Bethlehem Marketplace

St. Mark’s Annual Living Nativity

And, something new:

The Bethlehem Marketplace with a Soup Supper

All children everywhere are invited to participate as angels and shepherds in the dramatic telling of the birth of Jesus. No rehearsal necessary. We provide costumes. Simply show up at the church office at 5:00 on the night of Living Nativity, Saturday, December 16. Adult educators will see that your child gets to the stage on time. The action takes place outside in front of the church. All guests will enjoy the presentation of the Holy Family, Magi entourage, crazy camel,  shepherds, angels, and live animals.   Something new this year: The Bethlehem Marketplace. When the drama finishes, guests will process past the nativity on their way to the Marketplace in Bethlehem. There, enjoy a Soup Supper for a small fee in the fundraising efforts of St. Mark’s youth.

Also, kids will enjoy the petting corral with live animals; pound Roman coin; visit the Spice Shop; create royal crowns; pose at the photo booth; revel in Christmas art; and delight in the cookie and hot cocoa reception. Questions? Email Karen at or call the church office 858 273-1480. See you in Bethlehem. Shalom!
