Oh, little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie…well, that wasn’t the case last Sunday when the congregation went to Bethlehem. Bethlehem was buzzing! We were counted, the Census taker made sure of that! We enjoyed delicious goodies from the Bethlehem Bakery and relished in conversation that we had been longing to have. The children tiled boxes at the Mosaic shop and filled them with a small nativity at the Carpenters Shop. They fit perfect in the box! We even had our picture taken in the streets of Bethlehem and sang and danced at the Bethlehem well. Oh, what a wonderful feeling to catch up with our dear friends at the marketplace!

All this would not have been possible without the many servants’ hearts that worked so hard at setting up, serving, preparing, taking down and cleaning. Our hearts are full, our servants are many and our gratitude for the opportunity is immense! We are so grateful to God for blessing our day with fun, love and fellowship with friends!

Let us know if you would like to be part of another marketplace experience in the future!

God’s Blessings,

Sue Regner
