Christmas in Bethlehem – Sunday, November 21, 2021

11:00 a.m. – ADULT FORUM, Gathering Space – CHRISTMAS IN BETHLEHEM

  • Join members Martha Monson Lowe and George Lowe for a glimpse into Christmas in Bethlehem in the 21st century. The “little town” is not so little anymore. “Hopes and fears” are ever present. Yet, “the everlasting light”, the “holy child of Bethlehem”, draws us always to Him, and “the dear Christ enters in”.
  • Note: Palestinian arts and crafts will be available for sale before worship and after the congregational meeting.


  • Good Shepherd members Martha Monson Lowe and George Lowe are pleased to offer handmade Palestinian arts and crafts from the Holy Land for sale.
  • All items were collected from artists and shopkeepers during their last visit, when Martha and George volunteered at Bethlehem Bible College.
  • Items include olive wood carvings, cashmere scarves, pottery, jewelry, wool rugs, felt work, Christmas ornaments, embroidery, olive oil soap, kefiyas, Hebron glass, and more!
  • This is an opportunity to support those in the land where Jesus was born, and to buy meaningful gifts for Christmas, other occasions, and for yourself.
