Every wonder why doors open an hour early at concerts? Not only to make sure everyone finds a seat, but also to celebrate together! This year, we’re bringing you Festive Hour: an hour of food, fun, raffles, and more!
Join us at 6:00 pm. for this Christmas-themed hour before Fernando Ortega begins his performance at 7:00 p.m. What are we doing at Festive Hour? We’re so glad you asked!
Free appetizers! Homemade, tasty treats will be served in the Café area of Memorial Park Church, just outside of the Sanctuary. Grab a snack as you browse our Student Sponsorship Tree!
The Student Sponsorship Tree is filled with ornaments featuring our students in Sierra Leone. Take a look at the faces of the children we serve every day! Simply choose a student you’d like to sponsor. All it takes is a generous donation of less than $1 a day!
We’ll also be holding a gift basket raffle: Penguins tickets anyone? Bid on our It’s a Hockey Night basket! We’ll also have a Date Night basket—a perfect romantic evening for the holiday season—or you can big on our Gift Card Frenzy basket, filled with gift cards from all your favorite stores! Or you can bid to win one of two baskets filled with handmade items directly from Sierra Leone. And these are just a few of the prizes offered during Festive Hour!
Plus, you’ll be able to hear from singer/songwriter Matthew Montgomery as he performs prior to the show. Matthew will play songs from his new release, “Simple Words.” He was a great addition to the Memorial Park staff as an intern in 2017 before heading to Nashville. His love of the Lord and the Psalms will inspire you to do the Glory of God. He brings his Keagy-esque style music to the show this year for a festive opening set!
Don’t miss this opportunity to celebrate the holidays with us at the first ever Festive Hour. See you at 6:00 p.m.!
