Celebrating Ten Years...
Each year the Wonder of Christmas committee chooses a different theme for the exhibit. In the past we have had such themes as His Star Shines Brightly, The Gift of Love, Joy to the World, and From the Cradle to the Cross. This year's theme is His name is called... Here are some examples from scripture: Jesus, Wonderful, Counselor, Prince of Peace, Good Shepherd, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Messiah, Redeemer, Savior, Light of the World, and Lamb of God. There are more, of course, but this gives you the idea.
Please join us and see how our decorators use the various nativities and names of Jesus to make our exhibit truly a holy experience. As in past years, we will have live music much of the time. We offer cookies and coffee (or hot chocolate) to give you a chance to sit back and relax or visit with friends. Many people go back for a second look at the displays after taking some time to socialize.
Our Christmas Carol sing-a-long will be held both Friday evenings starting at 6:45 p.m. Come and join us as we sing all those favorite carols.
We love working with many Manitowoc area people to bring you this lovely Christmas exhibit. Actually, we have nativities not only from our area, but from people far and wide. We have one coming up from Chicago, another from Sturgeon Bay, more from the Sheboygan area, and that is just a start.
Our goal of helping keep Christ as the focus of Christmas has been achieved with the display of the unique nativity sets that are shared at our exhibit. Last year over 1,500 people came to see the displays. Now we want to share it with you. Plan to schedule a trip with friends, family, or even groups. If you have more than 10 in a group, call Judy at 920-684-0828 and we will try to have a guide available.
Photographs from this past Wonder of Christmas can be viewed at our Photo Gallery.
Wonder of Christmas is held at Manitowoc's Trinity Alliance Church; there is no admission charge. The dates of the 2013 Wonder of Christmas are shown below. We hope to see you there.
