MPCS Family Christmas

MPCS Family Christmas

 

A family-friendly community event for our entire MPCS family! 

WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 1

5:00 - 7:00 p.m. 

Back campus behind the Mulkey Building

 

MPCS families, join us for the second annual MPCS Family Christmas on December 1! This new tradition has quickly become a favorite as our entire community rings in the Christmas season. Families are invited to drop by at any time between 5:00-7:00 p.m. to walk the Christmas tree path, sip some warm hot chocolate provided by PTF, adore our preschool live nativity, listen to student musicians, and enjoy the lighting of the great tree, which will be even more spectacular this year!

We are thrilled to be able to support our Christian Life ministry partner, Calvary Children's Home, by purchasing live trees for our Family Christmas event! Every grade-level will decorate a live Christmas tree for display on campus upon return from Thanksgiving break. The trees are spread out behind the Mulkey Building, with entrances to the path from Shelton Circle or the High School Circle.

New this year! Families are encouraged to share the joy of Christmas by contributing to our "giving trees." We will collect new socks and gloves to benefit MPCS ministry partners MUST Ministries and 7 Bridges to Recovery. Simply bring your unwrapped items and place them at the “giving trees” at the entrances to the event.
