Today in the town of David a Savior has beeen born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. ~Luke 2:11

December 6th & 7th, 2024

6:00 - 8:00 PM


Imagine walking through Bethlehem and smelling fresh baked bread, working in a wood shop, eating from the marketplace...then suddenly, shepherds appear to tell you the great news...a Savior has been born! You then meet Mary and Joseph and see the Baby Jesus with your own eyes!


From the moment you arrive at Ashburn Presbyterian Church you are immersed in what it would be like to be visiting Bethlehem in the days surrounding the birth of Jesus.  Take a walk through the market and try your hand at traditional trades and crafts while hearing the Christmas story.  Visit with animals in the barnyard and take your place in line to visit with Mary, Joseph and the Baby in our live nativity.


Taking place for more than 8 years, we know this coming year will be our best year yet - hope to see you there!
