In the city where Jesus was born, kids and families got a chance to celebrate this year. Bethlehem Bible College hosted its first Christmas Festival.

Hundreds of kids, teens, and adults attended. The 2-day celebration featured games, hymns, a nativity play, and even face-painting. Yousef Qumsieh says, “The whole reason for this is our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He is the whole reason we celebrate. It’s not just the season, just because it’s that time of the year. There is a purpose for it. We also want to raise more awareness across the local community, that we exist as Bethlehem Bible college.”

“We’re here to spread the word of Jesus, and we want to do what we can to bring people back to Christ.”
