Kenai Peninsula residents had the chance to travel back in time 2,000 years this weekend.
More than 150 members of the College Heights Baptist Church in the Kalifornsky Beach area recreated the ancient city of Bethlehem. Many residents attended the church’s third year of “Bethlehem Revisited.”
Church members in costume greeted guests at the event while scarcely breaking from their roles as Jewish vendors, beggars and Roman soldiers. The church members said reaching the community and sharing the true meaning of Christmas makes the event special.
