The Israel/Palestinian Misson Network (IPMN) of the Presbyterian Church will be conducting a Bethlehem Prayer Service on Saturday, December 22. This service will be simulcast from the Washington National Cathedral and The Evangelical Lutheran Christmas Church in Bethlehem, Palestine at 10 AM Eastern Standard Time. This is the sixth year of the service.

Prayers, readings, and hymns alternate between Washington, DC and Bethlehem, Palestine, bringing together people of different lands, languages, and backgrounds in celebration of the birth of the Prince of Peace.

Service participants include Bishop Munib Younan, Bishop Suheil Dawani, The Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb, Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde, and Bishop Richard Graham.   Special Music will be provided by The Cathedral Voices Choir in Washington and the Christmas Lutheran Children’s Bell Choir in Bethlehem.
