Crews work on Bethleham set at the Chilliwack Corn Maze last week.

 

o room in the inn, no room to stay, that was the message given to Mary and Joseph wandering through Bethlehem.

 

“Experience the Journey” is an original Christmas story walk-through with King Herod, Mary and Joseph, the shepherds in the fields, the Wise Men and the angels pronouncing the good news of Jesus' birth.

 

 The Chilliwack Corn Maze farm is partnering with Genesis Church to present the true meaning of Christmas to families in the community.

 

Being homeless – without a place to stay, is also a fact for some members in our communities. As the weather gets wetter and colder, the need for clothing, food and shelter increases.

 

Genesis Church and The Chilliwack Corn Maze are encouraging the families who are coming to share by donating non-perishable foods as well as warm socks and mittens.

 

All food items will be donated to the Food Banks of Chilliwack and Abbotsford, and the clothing items will be donated to "The 5 & 2 Ministries" who spend 365 days a year ministering to those living on the streets.

 

For more information on The 5 & 2 Ministries see www.the5and2.ca.

 

At Genesis Church we are excited for this fund raising opportunity to spread the Good News of Jesus all year round!

 

 

WHEN/WHERE:

 

The community will have 3 days to experience this journey.  The barn will be transformed into a marketplace in Bethlehem with live actors, carolers & animals.  The venue will be covered BUT please dress for the weather.

DECEMBER 19 & 20 / 7pm – 9 pm

DECEMBER 21 / 6 pm – 8 pm
