The Bethlehem Experience in Westlake Village on December 14-15, 2018

The Bethlehem Experience is returning in 2018 on Friday and Saturday, December 14 and 15 from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm at Westminster Presbyterian Church Westlake Village. Drive through the First Christmas Eve!

For two magical nights, Bethlehem comes to Westlake Village as the congregation of Westminster Presbyterian Church (with support from Moorpark Presbyterian Church) transforms their church grounds into The Bethlehem Experience, an amazingly lifelike recreation of the 1st century village. Incredible sets, theatrical lighting, a wonderful collection of props, and over 100 members of the congregation in period costumes transport visitors back in time.

Visitors will drive past the Magi camped on the outskirts of the village, shepherds watching their sheep, Centurions and tax collectors at the gates to Bethlehem, villagers in the marketplace selling first century goods, the Inn that turned away Mary and Joseph and, of course, the Nativity scene with Mary, Joseph, angels and baby Jesus.

Westminster Presbyterian Church is located at 32111 Watergate Road, Westlake Village. FREE!
