The Manger Project is a fun and interactive Christmas tradition that helps families focus on the true meaning of Christmas while building a manger. This project gives families a chance to teach/learn hard work, perseverance and most importantly, why the manger (God coming to earth as a baby) is so important to their faith. This can easily become your family’s favorite Christmas tradition.
Join us anytime between 6-8pm on the 18th and 10am-12pm on the 21st to build your manger while enjoying some hot cocoa and cookies. The manger will take anywhere from 30-60 minutes to build. When you are all done take the manger along with a copy of the Journey to the Manger advent calendar home. Place the manger in front of your tree or another highly visible place so that you can see it daily while you are working through the advent calendar the rest of the season.
Service Project: As a fun way to continue to share the hope, joy, and generosity of Christmas with others around us we would love for this to also serve as a service project. During the month while your manger is sitting in front of the tree- we encourage your family to pick a family that you may know of who is in need, a neighbor, or organization (pregnancy center, homeless shelter, humane society, food pantry) dear to you to bless. Fill the manger with some items that whomever you choose may need and the week of Christmas take the filled manger (aka gift basket), and the advent calendar with you to bless them!
To make sure there is a manger kit available for you please Register Here! Registration will be limited to 15 families per time slot. If needed, we will add an additional time slot on Saturday, November 21st in the afternoon. We ask that everyone follow social distance guidelines and wear their masks when not at your table completely the project. Bring your hammer, your spouse and/or kids, and let your heart be captured by the wonder of the lowly manger.
