Winterfest 2018

Winterfest 2018 to come to the UPG in Bethlehem on December 1!

On Saturday December 1, 2018 from 4PM to 6PM, the United Proclamation of the Gospel in Bethlehem will celebrate our first “Winterfest!” Winterfest is designed to encourage our neighbors in Bethlehem to begin realizing the advent of God in the coming birth of the Christ Child!

Our Light of Christ campus will be transformed for the night! On our front lawn facing Easton Avenue we will have a live nativity scene, complete with Christmas music and live animals. On our Worthington Avenue lawn we will create a special center for young people to celebrate the night with games and activities designed for a joyful celebration. Free food and Christmas cookies will be shared with all who attend. In our sanctuary we will be able to listen to “sounds of the season” music provided by guest musicians!

At 5:45 PM all activities of the Winterfest will come to a close, and we will gather in our sanctuary to listen to the birth narrative of Jesus for the first time in 2018. Our evening will finish with the singing of a few Christmas carols.

Please tell your friends and family about this exciting event, and look for bulletin inserts in the coming weeks to volunteer your gifts, talents, and time to this new and exciting ministry.
