Guidestone Holiday Open House at the Hutchinson Homestead & Learning Center, Friday, December 7th

Join Guidestone on Friday, December 7th for a special evening with your family to celebrate the holidays in a traditional homestead style. From 4-6pm, the Hutchinson Homestead will come alive with holiday spirit!
Bring your favorite holiday cookie for a cookie exchange, create beautiful homestead-inspired holiday decorations to bring home, enjoy warm apple cider or hot cocoa and join in a carol sing-a-long awhile gathered around a cozy fire. For a very special treat, Santa Claus will gather the children at 4:15 for a walk to bring treats to the animals. Afterwards, he will be in the historic Ranch House to receive and hear Christmas wishes from children!

As part of the event, you can also support Guidestone with Holiday Decor. Create a festive home and holiday memories to cherish while helping support Guidestone’s programs!
