What to expect?
 
For those all of those that are wondering how we are going to do Breakfast with Santa this year, here it is!! We are planning and preparing for a drive-thru Christmas experience that is sure to bring the joy of the season to the whole family without you having to leave your car!
 
At each side of the building there will be different areas to stop and snack on some cold weather treats, engage in caroling with puppets, participate in The Manger Project and see a live nativity, deliver a letter to Santa and of course there will be an appearance with Santa and Mrs. Claus! Goody bags with crafts and treats for the whole family will be provided as well.
 
The Manger Project will benefit Love Inc. this year. Love Inc “exists to mobilize the church to transform lives and communities in the name of Christ.” Check them out here: http:// loveincgreaterhershey.org/. Just as God gifted us with His Son, we are asking that you help support the living Christ’s work here on earth, with a donation to Love Inc that is vital to their work during the Christmas season. As your family comes around to the Nativity side of the church, you will have an opportunity to hand your donation to an elf who will place the gift under the manger. At the end of the evening, all the “gifts”/donations will be collected and then delivered to Love Inc.
 
Love Inc is in need of the following items: grocery and gas gift cards ($20) and full-sized products including laundry detergent (pods preferred), dish soap, household cleaner (screw -on cap preferred), paper towels, toilet paper, men’s and women’s body wash, bar soap, deodorant and shampoo, feminine hygiene pads (regular and overnight), adult incontinence pads and pull-on briefs, and baby wipes.
 
So please, mark your calendars! We are excited to invite our congregation and community to join us in celebrating the Christmas holiday
