The Experience

The Experience is our annual family holiday event for families in the community and within the Church who could use a little help for the holidays.

The experience involves, in addition to a holiday meal package for each family: parking lot assistance, personal shoppers, an inside café, toys and gift wrapping, live music, and crafts for the kids.
