     Take a walk through a “Winter Wonderland,” “Candy Land,” the light maze, “Peace on Earth,” the dazzling forest twinkling over the lake and “Texas Christmas.” For those young in body or heart, you can have Christmas stars, candy canes, Christmas lights, crosses, and more painted on your face in the face painting area. Spend your time decorating your own Christmas cupcake that you’ll have a hard time deciding whether to eat it then or to save for Christmas Eve. 
     All are invited to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas at the birthday party for Jesus. Listen closely for the story of the birth of Christ as choirs share their side of the story with Christmas carols and hymns. Thaw your fingers and nose inside the conference room as you enjoy the best part of your evening. Here, you and your family will delight in the presentation of the Gospel and how Jesus coming to the earth has changed everything: watch videos of touching testimonies and listen to both song and scripture.
