Men, we want to help you keep Christ in Christmas for your family. The men's ministry and children's ministry have teamed up to host the Manger Build. Men are invited to come out on Saturday morning to build a life-sized manger with their children. It's going to be loud and exciting. The Manger Build provides a time and place for men to engage their children, serve their wives, and lead their families. This is a wonderful way for each family to give Christ a place of significance this Christmas.
Is there an age limit to enter the event?
No, children of all ages are welcome to attend. Our desire is that this event will create a memory that blesses the entire family. You will be driving and pulling nails. No cutting wood is involved. It may be difficult for littles ones to hammer and nail, but our Men's Ministry volunteers will be on hand to help dads with young children.
What if Dad isn't around?
Single moms can invite an uncle, grandfather, or neighbor to build a manger with their kids. The Manger Build presents an opportunity for the men of our church to bless families where dad isn't present. Please let Pastor Dustin know if you would like help in finding a man to help your child build a manger.
Can mom attend? We are asking that moms let dad do this with his kids. Yes, we know that some moms may be better with a hammer, but we want to encourage dad to spend this time with his kids. We will have coffee, tea and light refreshments upstairs for any moms that want to hang around while dad and the kids build their manger. Mom might just like to stay home and enjoy some alone time.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
The church will provide everything you need to build the manger. However, if your chilld has a smaller hammer or toolbox and that excites them about this project please let them bring it.
Do I have to register and pay online?
No, you can sign-up in the church foyer or online and make payment with check or cash at the event. Please select "pay at door" under payment method if using the eventbrite site to register.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Pastor Dustin can be reached at the church office or send him an email firstname.lastname@example.org
