Santa’s Wonderland is a free afternoon of Christmas fun for your family. Your children will experience wonder and delight in meeting Anna & Elsa from Frozen, having their train-ride tickets punched by the Conductor from The Polar Express and gazing at all the beautiful Christmas lights. They will thrill at opportunity to share their secret Christmas wish with Santa Claus, and of course, you will get to capture all the precious moments with photographs. No Wonderland experience could be complete without live Dickens Carollers, a chance to meet Santa’s Live Reindeer, hear a Christmas Story read by Mrs. Claus, enjoy a classic Christmas cartoon movie together on a big-screen (with popcorn!), create a keepsake ornament or enjoy delicious cookies and milk. Santa’s Wonderland has all of these and more.
This community family event, hosted by First Church, is sure to become one of your family’s most favorite Christmas traditions!

Budgets are stretched during the holiday season, but First Church believes sharing time with your family and making memories for a lifetime shouldn’t cost anything. The Santa’s Wonderland family experience is a gift, from our family to yours.
• Families with Special Needs will be able to enjoy Santa’s Wonderland. Several of our Nathaniel’s Hope Buddy Break Team Members will be on hand to assist and accompany any family as desired.
• First Church is fully accessible and Santa’s Wonderland will have a sensory sensitive room available as well.
Santa’s Wonderland is designed to simply be a fun experience for your family. No tricks, no bait-and-switch, no gimmicks.
We know many families have been to church-sponsored outreaches that used fun for the bait, but then are cornered into high-pressure evangelism. This is not the case at Santa’s Wonderland! First Church simply wants to share. We are a fun-loving, family-centric people, who have been changed by the love of Jesus Christ. If you want to be a part of that at some point in the future, great! But for now, we’re happy to simply help you make a new holiday memory with your family.
There are dozens of volunteer opportunities with this event. They include baking cookies, assisting with crafts, parking and greeting, tree decorating, photography, setup and staging, and more including indoor and outdoor projects.
