The 20th annual "Journey to Bethlehem" event at Grace Community Christian Church, 3754 Service Road, is preparing another season with a tremendous need for additional volunteer help, said assistant director Tamara Hott. She said a number of non-speaking roles need to be filled.

Journey will be held Dec. 1, 2, 3 and Dec. 8, 9 and 10. On Thursdays and Fridays the event starts at 7 p.m. and Saturdays at 6 p.m. with gates closing at 9 p.m. each night. The public is welcome to attend the free Christmas event which involves walking through live re-enactment of the biblical journey to Christ's birth.

Those who wanting to help should call the church at 531-1902.
