Welcome! We’re glad you’re here.

Walk Thru Bethlehem

Walk Through Bethlehem is an outreach ministry for the Matthews community and surrounding areas which dynamically reenacts the birth of Christ in the town of Bethlehem. In December of 2016, over 4,000 people came to experience this real-life telling of the nativity scene. We are grateful to the hundreds of volunteers that make this gift possible for our community.

Attendees have the opportunity to experience the world Jesus was born into, and actually help bring it to life! Every few years at Christmas, we tell Jesus’ story and transform MUMC into Bethlehem, a city over 2000 years old. Enjoy a glimpse of a previous WTB event here!
