As a gift to our church and our community, Simpsonwood has re-imagined our annual live Walk Through Bethlehem into a video experience that can be enjoyed no matter where you celebrate Christmas this year. You’ll see shops and characters that you know and love from our in-person event (the camels, too!) all while witnessing the Christmas story in a new and exciting way.

Simpsonwood UMC has teamed up with local members of the film industry to re-imagine their annual Walk Through Bethlehem event into a movie experience that will be a part of our online Christmas Eve service. Along with traditional songs of the season and a Christmas message from Senior Pastor John Purrington, viewers will travel through the colorful shops of Bethlehem on their way to the manger. Together, viewers will experience the magic of the Christmas Story like never before.

Simpsonwood’s Christmas Eve service will premiere at 5:00pm on December 24, on the Simpsonwood UMC website, Facebook page, and YouTube. Following the premier, service will be available on demand.
