The weeks leading up to Christmas are often busy and filled with long lists of tasks.  Yet, there is something so special, so miraculous, that often gets overlooked in the holiday preparations.  Plan now to pause and spend an evening remembering that we have already recceived the most amazing gift.

At Away in a Manger we will fellowship together over a meal, enjoy hot cocoa, cookies and live animals, and most importantly, we will hear the story of the birth of our Savior.  

Schedule of events:

5:30 p.m. Dinner in Carpenter Hall

6:00 p.m. Hot cocoa and cookies on the lawn (with live animals)

6:30 p.m. A Retelling of the Christmas story

7:00 p.m. Make a craft to take home to help you pause on Christmas morning and remember Jesus
