Frequently Asked Questions
Where is this again? We'll be in the cafeteria of Oak Ridge Elementary School, located on the side of the building as you pull up on Shelfer Road. We'll have plenty of signs to guide you to the right spot!
Do I need a ticket? Nope! This event is free and open to the public. We'd love to have you come, join us, and bring some friends along with you!
Okay, but this is a chruch. Is there an offering? Yes, but not for us. 100% of your giving on Christmas Eve will go to an organization called International Disaster Emergency Services and will be used to help people recover from Hurricane Michael. All financial giving (up to $1 million) will be matched, so your giving makes double the difference! And don't worry; if things are tight and you can't give, there's no pressure to participate. We'll actually have a simple, no money required way for you to still make a difference. (You'll have to come to find out!)
Is there childcare available? Absolutely! We'll have childcare available for kids 3 and under, if you'd like to take advantage of that. All our volunteers are background checked and screened to ensure your safety. You can check your child(ren) in by following the signs pointing you to our Kids check-in area once you pull up.
Are there snacks? You bet. We'll have some lovely homemade Christmas treats, as well as some coffee, tea, and cocoa. Your only challenge will be saving room for Christmas dinner.
Do I have to wear a suit or something? What about that ugly Christmas sweater my auntie gave me? Wear whatever you want, but jeans and a T-shirt is fine. (And if it helps to wear the sweater so you can snag a photo of you in it for Aunt Carol, that's fine by us.)
