Bethlehem Star as we have all come to love and know the event will be taking a break this year due to COVID-19.
However, we are planning something unique in it's place that will be more like an unmanned Christmas scene that tells the story of Christ's birth.
Each evening, starting December 1 and running until December 23, from 5:30 pm until 9 pm we invite you to drive up to our main church parking lot at 3412 15 Avenue in Vernon.
The automated presentation runs for approximately 5 minutes with a 5 minute interval in between. There will be information about how you can tune in, from the comfort and safety of your vehicle, to listen to the Christmas story as it is broadcast over a radio frequency. The event is of course, completely FREE.
We felt, especially in this year of global turmoil and uncertainty, we wanted to remind ourselves of the hope and joy that the birth of Jesus Christ, God's Son, gives us. We know that many in our community have made Bethlehem Star an annual event on your calendar and didn't want these unusual circumstances to cause us to do nothing or cancel everything.
We trust that this small effort will bless and encourage you as you come and watch and listen in to the greatest story ever told.
We look forward to, God willing, being able to bring Bethlehem Star back to our community again in December 2021.
Feel free to contact the church office at: [email protected] or 250-545-5941 (Mon-Fri: 9 am - 4 pm) for more information.
