The Church School children of St. Philip’s in the Hills Episcopal Church invite the public to experience a bustling market in Jesus’ day. The interactive event will take place from 10:15 to about 11:15 a.m. Sunday.

Children will re-create a marketplace in ancient Jerusalem featuring “storefronts” filled with near-authentic food and goods in the plaza at the church, 4440 N. Campbell Ave., at East River Road.

The marketplace is not a real market, with goods for sale, but a re-creation of one.

Markets in ancient Jerusalem were exciting places filled with commotion. Merchants hawked everything from fresh produce to linen cloth to brass lamp stands.

Exotic animals such as apes and peacocks were offered, along with sheep and goats for sacrifices.

St. Philip’s Jerusalem Marketplace will not include apes and peacocks, nor will sacrifices take place, but visitors may savor the aromas of the spice shop and fruit peddler, stop by the bakery for warm bread and taste olives and other fare. Watch the artisans demonstrating their crafts and perhaps participate yourself. Pause for a refreshing cup of water.

The event is free. For more information call the church office at 299-6421.
