Family Friendly Christmas Events at PVUMC
Throughout the month of December, we offer several ways to experience Christmas.
On Sunday, December 2, our littlest singers, the Mini-Singers, perform a mini Christmas concert at 11:15 am in the sanctuary. Hear how sweet they sound and enjoy cookies following their performance. You’re invited to bring cookies to share!
Families with little ones through elementary school age children are invited to our Christmas Wonderland on Friday, December 14 at 6 pm in the Fellowship Center. Santa will be there, and we’ll enjoy hot cocoa, pizza and crafts before we break out the popcorn for the animated family feature film: The Star. (rated PG). Wear your pajamas, and bring a pillow and blanket or sleeping bag to snuggle into during the movie.
