Post of the week from these parts here:

What You Need to Get Through Your Darkest Days of the Year & Light Your Way from Advent to Christmas

that somehow changes your condition… the conditions of everything.

Do We Get To Meet You & Celebrate Christmas Together?


So… how about an evening that’s like a gift just for you

where you feel the wonder of CHRISTmas again?

Think candles.

Think music that sounds like the voice of an angel: with Dove Award Winner for Best New Artist of the Year, Ellie Holcomb. Think gloriously, powerful moving words:  with spoken word poet, Amena Brown.
Think of an unforgettable Christmas evening Unwrapping the Greatest Gift — with this farm girl & one of her farm girls. Think an evening  lit with the warming gift you want most: Jesus.

Amena, Ellie & us farm girls, we’re so excited! Do we get to exhale relief & inhale Christmas with you? 

We’d love to meet you & have The Greatest Christmas!
