Start a new family tradition this year at Moravian Mountain Christmas at Laurel Ridge!

Join us December 5-7, 2014, for a wonderful time of holiday celebration. Stay the entire weekend or join us for a day. The weekend will be filled with activities like craft making for families, sounds of the season by various musical talents including the Junior Appalachian Musicians and lots of vendors on hand to offer you the opportunity to purchase that special gift you’ve been looking for!

Other festive activities include hayrides throughout the mountainside, a Kids Corner with great stories of the season, a family gingerbread house creating contest, and a special appearance by Santa Claus on Saturday morning! Join us Sunday morning for a worship service that will be followed by a time of fellowship at brunch.

The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to till it and keep it. Genesis 2:15

Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5

Creator of the universe, what a privilege you have gifted to us! You have entrusted us to care for the beautiful world that you have created. May we be worthy of that trust. May we tend your garden well. Teach us to be wise stewards and to care gently for the earth and all her creatures. Amen.
