It's hard to believe, but our Bethlehem outreach is just around the corner – Thursday through Monday, December 7th through 11th, from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. There will be five 30-minute performances each night. Admission and hot drinks are free.

Thousands of Santa Clara families will come to experience the Christmas Story in our parking lot. Here is how you can make a difference this year:

We begin with prayer

It's not too early to begin praying for those visitors who will be coming and don't know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. Pray that people will come who need to know Jesus. Pray that they hear and experience the message of the Christmas story. Pray that they will be open to receive this message in their minds and hearts.

Also pray that those who come from other churches every year to be blessed by our production will bring their own friends, neighbors and relatives to experience the Christmas story. May many churches also leverage this event to expand their own outreach endeavors in their part of God's great Kingdom.

As we pray, so may we serve

How will you join with the rest of the family at SCFBC to make this year's Bethlehem outreach the best ever? Will you be a town's person? Man a marketplace booth? Join the company of Roman guards? How about helping with parking? Handing out hot chocolate? Distributing the costumes? Serving in the first aid station? Serving as a youth slave or entourage dancer? If you'd like more information about how to help during Bethlehem, please contact Trudy Kroll at or call the office at (408) 241-7635.

It's not too late for you to get involved. Ask God where He wants you to serve and jump in!
