A Journey of Love
One cold, starlit night, 400 people visited the first “Holy Walk.” After reading an
article about a farm doing a live nativity, I felt led by the Spirit to do something similar. I presented the idea to our Sunday School class and we decided to do more. Using Luke’s Gospel, we wanted it to be like that first Christmas. It would be a journey, a journey of love.
"The Bremen Holy Walk is a special time of the year bringing the whole community together to share the true meaning of Christmas. It is neat to see how God brings everyone together to share the wonderful message of His love and forgiveness of all our sins. -Mike Haag
Sharing the Journey
"After attending my first Holy Walk, I wanted to be a part of this miraculous event. For over 30 years I have been a costumed volunteer with my favorite being a guide that takes my family to Bethlehem. And we find Jesus! What a blessing to share the greatest LOVE story ever told.
Years of Memories
"The Bremen Holy Walk offers such a unique holiday experience as well as memories for all ages. To me, it serves as a living breathing representation of my journey through life as a Christian, but also as a member of a loving family both spiritually and physically. My family and I still have the keepsakes that we saved from Holy Walks over 30 years ago."
Believing is New Life
"The 40th Bremen Holy Walk is an opportunity to show our faith to the world. I love the song, 'We Believe.' It states 'We believe in God the Father and Jesus Christ, His son. We believe in the Resurrection and He's given us new life.' That new life is Heaven and eternity.
