The Meaning, the Magic, the Music

James 1:17 tells us that every good and perfect gift is from above!

There’s no better time to celebrate those gifts than the birthday of Jesus, the greatest gift of all!

Christmas is a time for friends and family, so gather yours for an evening you won’t forget.

You’ll hear the stories and songs of Christmas in a way you might never have heard them. Grammy award winners Steven Curtis Chapman and Laura Story are joined by the best storytellers around—Patsy Clairmont, Luci Swindoll, Marilyn Meberg and Mary Beth Chapman along with comedienne Anita Renfroe—to present ...an event that brings the wonder of Christmas to life. The night wouldn’t be complete without experiencing the magic of Christmas with illusionist Harris III, and he’s bringing something special just for the kids. The evening is hosted by Lisa Whelchel of TV’s “The Facts of Life.”

It’s a time that’s uniquely enjoyable to everyone - a time to celebrate the gifts we’ve been given, the joy of the season and the meaning of it all. That’s what 12 Gifts of Christmas is all about, and you won’t want to miss it!
