On Sunday, November 21 at 4:00 PM the Kids Ministry will host The Christmas Experience in the Family Life Center. This fun, interactive event is designed to give your family a chance to catch your breath and reclaim the warmth and peace of Christmas. The Christmas Experience is made up of five separate activities or stations — the Carpentry Shop, Bethlehem Bakery, Pottery Shed, Painter’s Hut and The Stable.
The purpose of ‘The Gift‘ is to give parents a chance to teach kids about hard work, perseverance and (most importantly) why the manger is so important to our faith. Also included in this kit will be a list of possible Christmas activities, service opportunities and devotionals.
Registration is $20/family. This covers the cost of building materials for the manger. If you can’t make it to church on November 21, you can still purchase the kit and work on the manger at home. The cost for purchasing the kit to take home is $20. NOTE: If your family built a manger last year and plan to reuse it (and bypass the Carpentry Shop), registration is $10/family.
This is a 100% hands-on activity where every member of the family gets to play a part. If you will be building a manger at the event, please do bring a hammer. Because this is a self-guided activity, so feel free to come anytime between 4:00 and 6:00 PM and work at your own pace. On average, manger assembly takes between 35 and 60 minutes.
The Christmas Experience is a community event, so definitely invite your neighbors, co-workers or your children’s friends to come with you!
So that we know how many people to expect, REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
