Our annual Walk Through Bethlehem is on the calendar for December 16 from 1 to 6 p.m. and many, many volunteers are needed to make it all happen. To sign up to help the day of the event, please stop by the sign-up chart in the children’s hallway to see what spots are available. Currently, we need shop keepers, soldiers, wise men, grape stompers and all other villagers to make the day complete.
If you would like to help from home, we can give you the recipe to make Bethlehem Bread for our food shop or you can supply our work crews with soup & sandwiches for lunch during set-up week. We also need snack goodies for the break room on December 16.
A looming need this year is for more volunteers to help with set-up days, primarily December 12, 13 and 14. Laying the floor and setting up shops must be completed on December 12 before wood chips are delivered on December 13. Many able bodies are needed on that Thursday to move in the chips and spread them around Parish Hall. Work days begin around 9 a.m. and usually wind down around 6 p.m. If there are any classes or groups who would like to come as a group to work any evening, please let Sue Isbell know and special arrangements will be made. There is always lots to do to prepare for this event! Contact Sue Isbell at the church with questions firstname.lastname@example.org.
