Journey to Bethlehem will travel Main Street

    Everyone is welcome to participate in a special event to celebrate the Christmas season in Steelville. The Steelville Ministerial Alliance is sponsoring a “Las Posadas (The Inns)” or “Journey to Bethlehem” on Sunday, December 12, starting at 6 p.m. from the parking lot of the Assembly of God Church.

    Participants will walk down Main Street, following Mary and Joseph, with a donkey, only to be turned away at several stops along the path to Steelville Presbyterian Church. They will sing carols at each stop. 
    Once the group reaches the Presbyterian Church, there will be a short service in the sanctuary, then all will adjourn to Roper Hall to enjoy cookies, hot chocolate, and pinata breaking. 
    Those who wish to join in the walk are asked to be at the Assembly parking lot at 5:45 p.m. (with a candle) to get lined up. Those who are unable to walk that far may join everyone in the sanctuary at around 6:45 p.m. for the service and fun in the fellowship hall. 
    The Assembly will use their van to shuttle people back to their cars after fellowship time.
