As the Advent season unfolds, we hope your family is led on a faith-filled journey to the manger. Join us Friday, November 30th, 6:00-8:00p for The Christmas Experience. This event is made up of three separate activities, The Manger Project, a Christmas Cookie Contest, and Gingerbread House Creation. Your family can register for just one activity or all three of them.
The Manger Project- A fun and interactive Christmas tradition that helps families focus on the true meaning of Christmas while building a manger. This event kids parents a chance to teach their kids hard work, perseverance, and most importantly, why the manger (God coming to earth as a baby) is so important to their faith.
The Manger Project is 100% hands-on, interactive activity that will easily become your family’s favorite Christmas tradition. The $15 registration fee will cover all of the materials (wood, nails, straw), assembly instructions AND a colorful 96-page “Journey to the Manger” book containing Advent poster, Bible character stickers, daily faith activities, readings, kids’ puzzles, and more.
The Christmas Cookie Contest is a friendly competition between families. Can you bake a cookie that will wow our judges and win the Ultimate Christmas Cookie award? Work together as a family to bake your favorite Christmas cookies and bring them in the night of the event to be entered into the contest. Each team is allowed to enter up to three different kinds of cookies and we ask that you bring 3 dozen of each cookie entered. Each cookie will be judged on appearance, aroma, texture, and flavor.
Gingerbread House Creations is a chance for families to slow down amidst the holiday frenzy and enjoy meaningful moments with your children while creating gingerbread houses. Your hands will be messy, but your hearts will be merry! This is a 100% hands-on activity where every member of the family gets to play a part. It’s not about the destination (perfect house), but the journey (shared experience with the family). So take it easy and enjoy the moments of being together and having fun. Each gingerbread house is $5 and will include supplies to decorate your creation.
Registration will close November 25th. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org
