Due to concerns for your health and safety, our 24th annual "An Evening in December," will be an outdoor event. This event will be a walk-through experience of songs and drama hosted on our west lawn with volunteers from our community.

As you walk you will hear your guide tell the story of Christmas. Your tour will end with an opportunity to immerse yourself in a first-century Bethlehem-inspired village. There, you will be greeted by shopkeepers with first-century wares, a petting zoo, and other unique sights.

Enjoy complimentary light refreshments as carolers sing with you before you are shuttled back to your car.

*Parking in the church lot will ONLY be available for those with Disabled Parking Permits on their car. If you do not have a Disabled Parking Permit, your parking location for free pickup and drop-off to attend the experience will be at Peters Point.
