The Child of Bethlehem project in Palestine reaches out to Palestinian children and youth within all denominational churches, clubs, villages and schools, through a strong Bible-based programme. The project promotes strong Christian education and values, sharing the Bible with these young people.
Every year, the Palestinian Bible Society hosts events throughout Christmas, Easter and Summer including trips, shows, conferences and camps. This Easter they were delighted to be able to arrange several Easter events for the communities throughout their country, from Ramallah to Birzeit to Bethlehem.
The biggest event they hosted took place on Good Friday and attracted people from all over the Ramallah district, mostly Christians but even a few Muslim families. There were over 800 children who attended along with their parents. This event had an inflatable bounce park, craft areas and an Easter egg hunt. Thankfully the Palestinian Bible Society had more than enough sweets and treats to hand out!
Most importantly, the Easter message was delivered to the children and their families, explaining why Easter is celebrated and why the Gospel is important to the life of every person there. The event ended by collectively praying the Lord’s Prayer together with the crowd. Hundreds of Children’s Bibles were distributed to those in attendance. This event, as well as many others like it hope to promote the message of the Gospel, Bible engagement and also to develop relationships with people, opening the door for personal evangelism to take place. Please join us as we pray for these events in Palestine.
