Join Guidestone on Friday, December 8th for a special evening with your family to celebrate the holidays in a traditional homestead style as the Hutchinson Homestead comes alive with holiday spirit!
Bring your favorite holiday cookie for a cookie exchange, enjoy warm apple cider while gathered around a cozy fire, and create homespun ornaments to decorate a wreath, the Ranch House Christmas tree, or to bring home for your family’s tree.
For a very special treat, Santa Claus will gather and walk with the children to provide hay for the horses and cows, and scatter seed for the wild deer and birds. Afterwards, he will be in the Ranch House to receive and hear Christmas wishes from children!
