On the second Saturday of every December, South Elkhorn Christian Church does a Drive-Thru Bethlehem. For three hours, hundreds of cars line up to see the live presentation of nine scenes of the Christmas story come to life. Members of South Elkhorn dress in costume and take their places as shepherds, angels, Roman soldiers, Mary and Joseph. One of the unique features of the Drive-Thru Bethlehem is the presence of many animals. There are sheep, donkeys, cows, and a live camel every year.
South Elkhorn Christian Church was founded in 1767 and was originally in Upper Spottsylvannia, Virginia as a Baptist Church. Due to differing views and not being apart of the Church of England, they traveled west to find religious freedoms. It wasn’t until 1783 that South Elkhorn found its roots at it’s present location on Harrodsburg Road and became a Christian Church.
Drive-Thru Bethlehem will take place on Saturday, December 8 from 6 pm to 9 pm. It is an event they put on for the community during the holidays.
