Please join us for our annual Christmas in the Barn service at the farm. Lord of Love Lutheran Church pastor Meggan Prosser-Gebhardt will officiate a simple, inspirational Christmas Eve service to help you start out your blessed holiday in the right frame of mind. A live reenactment of the Christmas Story accompanied by acoustic musicians will be followed by cookies and warm refreshments, and you will still have time to get onto your other activities for the evening. Registered and physically challenged guests will be seated first; 15 minutes before the service we will open seating to unregistered parties. Standing room will be available for latecomers and overflow.
We’ve had a tremendous response to our worship services this year. There is an optimum number where everybody is comfortably accounted for, so in theory, the 2:00 and 4:30 are filled up. Having said that, there’s nothing that keeps people from not showing up for any number of reasons. So we’ve attempted to handle the numbers beyond what we expected by doing the following:
- Allowing all ticketed guests first entry up until 15 minutes before the start of each 2:00 and 4:30 service. After that, we will allow non ticketed guests to enter along with ticketed guests. We have an extra tent attached to the barn for standing room after all seats in the barn are filled.
- Adding an extra, non ticketed service at 3:15. Attendees of this service may still visit live animals, and partake of warm beverages and treats, however, there will not be a live reenactment that accompanies the scriptural story, sermonette and carols we sing, so it should only last about one half hour, as opposed to the 45 minute live nativity service.
We hope this helps you and your family find a suitable solution to coming to the farm to worship Baby Jesus with us:)
Please dress appropriately for a cool climate in the barn. Our animals await your visit:)
SEATING IS LIMITED FOR BOTH the 2:00 and 4:30 SERVICES; A 3:15 SERVICE HAS BEEN ADDED FOR THOSE NOT TICKETED FOR THE OTHER SERVICES.
In consideration for others, arrivals after the published starting time will be ushered to our standing room area.
PRIORITY DROPOFF WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR ELDERLY AND PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED GUESTS.
