Guidestone Holiday Open House - Thursday, December 5th from 4-6 pm

Join Guidestone on Thursday, December 5th for a special evening with your family to celebrate the holidays in traditional homestead style. From 4 to 6 pm, 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 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! We hope you will join us for this heart-warming holiday afternoon!

As part of the event, you can also create a festive home and holiday memories while helping support Guidestone’s programs. Purchase and decorate a wooden reindeer or snowperson for your home, lawn, or porch! Ribbons, greens and additional decorations will be provided at the event. These items can be pre-ordered and will also be available at the event. Pre-ordered items will be available for pick up at the Holiday Open House or by special appointment the week of December 9th. Wreaths are also available if you pre-order by 5 pm on Monday, December 2nd. For more information, pricing, and to place your advance order, please visit

Homestead-style gifts will also be available in the Homestead Store, and proceeds will support Guidestone’s programs.
