One of my favorite things at our church is Bibletimes Marketplace. It is such a big production that we only do it every other year. But they convert the whole church building into a first-century AD or in this case, an Old Testament Babylon, in the 500’s BC. No one is allowed in without a costume!
This is Charlie and Chance with their friend William.
Even the babies are in costume!
They gather in small groups in tents. This is their tribe/family. Their group travels to the different areas throughout their time together.
On the final night, they invite the families of the kids to come and see the final performance.
We even sang Hebrew songs!
A few men acting out one of the stories. I think this is Shadrach, Meshach and Abednago and the fiery furnace.
I’m so grateful for our church making the Bible come alive to our kids!
