Journey to the Manger Pic






Journey to the Manger will be December 14 from 2:00-4:00 PM (please make sure and arrive by 3:30 PM as our last group will walk through at that time). See the story come alive as the children of our Sunday School program dress up in costume and retell the birth of our Savior Jesus in several stations around our nature trail. This event is an outreach opportunity where the children of migrant families in our area are invited to come walk through and experience this. Afterwards there will be a Christmas party where we will give them presents as a part of our annual Angel Tree program.
