      The Polar Express – Community Event (12/18)

      Due to a wrestling tournament hosted at ADHS, we had to shift the date of our upcoming community event from Saturday to Sunday. This will be our 3rd Annual Polar Express movie event, and it’s poised to be every bit as beautiful as our previous efforts, if not more so!

      Like last year, this year’s event is truly a joint effort with our host school. The night will include special performances by the Athens Drive High School drum line, chorus, and theater department! Additionally, we’re providing food/drinks before the movie, popcorn, and photos with a “real” Santa for every family who comes!

      To make this all happen, once again we will need your help. Sign up today!

      The Polar Express – Community Event (12/18)

      Together with the faculty at Athens Drive High School, we are sponsoring 11 families (including 20+ children) who need some help this Christmas season. We launched our Angel Tree initiative last weekend following Thanksgiving, and we were BLOWN AWAY by your resonse!! 46 of the 66 gift-tags have already been claimed.

      THANK YOU!! Reminder: please bring your gifts unwrapped to church by December 18 with the identifying tag/number clearly visible.
