Changes for Saturday, Dec 17th
Due to the extremely cold temperatures expected this evening, we will be moving the Journey to Bethlehem inside. We will usher travelers directly into the Winter Wonderland where we will present a shortened version of the Journey every 20 min or so while you enjoy a free hot meal, cookies, crafts and inflatables. Please check the current weather conditions and use your best judgment before starting your journey to Rose Hill.

What is the cost?

May I make a donation?
Yes. As you leave the Winter Wonderland, there will be a designated spot to place voluntary donations.
What should I wear?
We would recommend dressing warmly with comfortable walking shoes. Please refer the weather forecast for the Wichita area and dress accordingly. Keep in mind that you will spend approximately 35 minutes outside exposed to the elements.
Is the Journey handicap accessible?
The Journey to Bethlehem involves a 35 minute stroll around a grass field. There are no hills, but the ground is uneven in many places. There is also minimal lighting from nearby street lights, torches, fire pits and an occasional spot light. A wheelchair would be difficult to push along the route, especially after rain or snow. We will have 1 or 2 golf carts available at a first come, first serve basis. If you are ready to start the Journey and a golf cart is not available, you can step aside and wait for one. There are two small steps to climb at the end of the Journey to enter the Winter Wonderland.
Are there restrooms available?
Yes. The most convenient times to visit the restroom would be when you first arrive and after the Journey during your stay in the Winter Wonderland.
Will the Journey to Bethlehem be cancelled in the case of bad weather?
We would cancel only in extreme cases of snow, ice, wind or dangerous temperatures. We will post any cancellation notices on the rosehillcc.org home page, on our Facebook page. If able, we will also be included in any lists posted on local TV stations.
Where do we park?
We will have parking assistants stationed at the entrance to our parking lot. Overflow can park on the street, but please use caution when in traffic.
