Upcoming Christmas Events

With Christmas coming up, there are so many things to do around the Central Alberta area. Here are a few of the things we are going to enjoy in the next few weeks.

November 25 @ 5pm The Town of Ponoka is having the tree lighting with carol singing and fire works at 6 pm.

November 26th 10-4 Lacombe Christmas Craft Show at LMC

November 30 11-3 Ponoka Christmas Farmer's Market at the Legion. They will also have markets on Dec. 1 3-7, Dec. 7 11-3 and Dec. 8 3-7.

December 2 9-1 I will have a table at the Lacombe Christmas Farmers Market at the LMC.

December 8 @ 7pm The Freedom Singers will be performing at The Church of the Open Bible in Ponoka. These are 3 men, 2 of which, escaped from Romania because of persecution. They had an awful time getting to Canada and they share their story and sing. It should be very powerful.

December 9 9-1 I will have a table at the Lacombe Christmas Farmers Market at the LMC.

December 9 @ 1:15 The Word of Life Church in Red Deer is giving a free matinee of the play, "The Search of The Wanderer". This is for schools and is offered to us that home school as well. If you wish to attend, you need to email Iris Reimer at tworeimers@gmail.com by NOVEMBER 25th to let her know.

December 9-11 @7pm The Calvary Baptist Church in Wetaskiwin is having an "Evening in Bethlehem". This is outdoors and indoors. They will have live actors and live animals! They ask for a food donation to the food bank. They are located at 4910 Northmount Drive, 1/4 mile west of the hospital.

December 16 @ 7:30 The Central Alberta Homeschool Choir is having a concert at the Mission
Church in Wetaskiwin. This is our first time attending this event. We hear it is absolutely magical and we are so excited.

December 17 @ 4pm If you missed the Homeshcool Choir concert yesterday, you can catch them at College Heights SDA Church.

December 25 @ 11 am The Church of The Open Bible is having a Christmas Service. We are so very happy to be able to focus on the true meaning of Christmas on Christmas morning. What a blessing this will be.

OK, now I'm a little tired thinking of all the things we are going to do! But it will be a wonderful way to really enjoy the whole Christmas season. Even if you don't live in this area, there are probably some great things happening around you. Check your newspaper, community boards and local churches to find out what's going on. God bless.
