During this service you will be presented with the ornament to take and place in your home during the holiday season.

Moms, daughters, and other loved ones of all ages are invited to join us for this annual tea gathering. Wear your favorite holiday dresses, and girls, bring your dolls, too!

Nativities from around the world will be available for viewing in our Art Gallery.
Registration will not start until September 1, 2019.
