The alley in downtown Murray will be transformed into a first-century marketplace with tribes of children, shops, singing and dancing, and Jewish teaching.

Registration is open for third annual installment of Marketplace 29 A.D. {Click here to register.}

Pre-event registration is required. Children who participate are divided into tribes and given costumes for the week. Those are details that need to be tended to before 150+ kids show up on Monday morning. 

Here are the details ...

WHO: School-aged kids from 5 to 12 years old
Childcare is provided for younger kids if parents are interested in volunteering. Teenagers are welcomed to volunteer, but they need to register to do.

WHAT: A chance to learn more about the Jewish culture
This is the culture/society in which Jesus was raised and continues to serve as a foundation of Christianity. It's fun, educational and more elaborate than typical vacation Bible schools.

WHEN: Oct. 7-11, 2013
Specifically, it's 8:30 a.m. to noon Oct. 7-10 and 5:30-7:30 pm. Oct. 11 so parents and siblings can walk through the Marketplace with participants.

WHERE: The alley behind Murray Family Church
Participants are dropped off and picked up at First Methodist Church, which is the corner of Fifth and Maple streets in downtown Murray

HOW: Register children. Email us to volunteer. 
Also feel free to make donations and help spread the word.
