Bethlehem Experience
Subject: Follow the Star to Bethlehem at Ashtabula Mall

Ashtabula area churches are preparing for Christmas already—together. A group is planning a “Bethlehem Experience” event for the public on December 8-9, 5:00-8:30pm. This re-creation of ancient Bethlehem will use the previous Dillard’s location in Ashtabula Towne Square Mall.

Monthly meetings have attracted dozens of individuals from different Christian communities. They meet in Ashtabula County District Library as a neutral location.

Volunteers are stepping forward to act as guides, wise men, vendors in the marketplace, Roman soldiers, and much more. Volunteers are still needed for several parts. The free event aims to tell the story of the Nativity of Jesus in a fresh way, as a lived experience. Attendees will even be able to encounter live animals such as a sheep and camel.

“We think the camel will be very memorable for kids. He’s very sweet. It’ll be a big draw,” said organizer Bridget Orqvist at a planning meeting. Bridget and her sister Pat Van Allen also modeled costumes as samples of the type of desert attire that volunteers would wear at the Bethlehem Experience.

The sisters first got the idea when they experienced a similar event in Toledo, Ohio when visiting family.

In other cities, the Bethlehem Experience has been hosted by single church. In Ashtabula, it has become a chance for various groups to work together on what they share in common: a belief in Jesus of Nazareth, born in Bethlehem over 2000 years ago.

Each church will have an opportunity to contribute to the event, will be named in publicity, and also share information about their Christmas services with those who attend.

The event has also attracted sponsors such as Ashtabula County Sheriff’s Department, The Ashtabula Foundation, Ashtabula Towne Square, Ashtabula Township Fire Department, First United Methodist-Nehemiah Fund, Helping Hands Ministry, St. John School, St. Peter Episcopal Church Foundation, and University Hospital.

As a result, free bussing will be available from three locations in Ashtabula, there will also be security, and other perks for guests.

Family and friends are invited to the tree lighting ceremony in remembrance of those who have died during the past year.

“The holiday season, while joyous for most people, may be very difficult for those who have lost a loved one. We understand those feelings you may be going through and encourage you to join us. Hosting community events allow us to be a force for building supportive community, to redefine what it means to celebrate life, and to embrace each other in times of challenge,” said Ross DeJohn III, President & COO of DeJohn-Flynn-Mylott Funeral Homes.

There will be a brief prayer service inside the funeral home and each name of the deceased will be called. At that time, the family may go outside to hang their ornament on the tree. The tree, which is located in the front of the building, will remain lit throughout the holiday season in memory of all our loved ones.

Families are recommended to bring a weather-resistant ornament to hang on the tree in memory of the person who died. These ornaments can represent anything significant to the person or your family.

Lake County YMCA
Subject: Spread the Joy - Lake County Y PB&J Collection

All Lake County YMCA branches will be collecting peanut butter and jelly from its members and the community thoughout the month of December to replenish local food pantries in January.

“Last year we were able to collect 3,270 jars of peanut butter and jelly which was distributed to over 10 local food pantries including McKinley Community Center, Madison Food Bank, local church food pantries, Willoughby Food Pantry, and End 68 hours of hunger. By helping to fill their pantries with PB&J they can spend precious resources on other important needs. It was another record year for our collection and we hope the support this year is as strong,” said Margaret Warner, Healthy Living Director of the Lake County West End Y.

Any size peanut butter and jelly donations are accepted at the Lake County Central Y in Painesville, at the West End Y in Willoughby, and at the East End Y in Madison.

“The Lake County Y is dedicated to supporting individuals and offering help in trying times, including feeding the needs of our community. The Christian Emphasis Committee at West End Y started the collection six years ago and now the whole association is involved which allows us to make a much greater community impact. Our community grows stronger each year as evidenced by the growing support of this program and others at the Y,” added Warner.

For more information regarding the Spread the Joy food collection contact the Lake County West End Y at 440-946-1160.
