The Christmas Story in Lights
A Drive-Through Experience

Throughout the month of December, we invite you into a new experience at Wayzata Community Church: The Christmas Story in Lights. As you drive through the WCC grounds, you will be invited to pause at 8 stations, each one sharing the Christmas story in bright lights, music, and narration, starting with the Angel visiting Mary, to the Three Kings traveling to our newborn King in a humble manger.
And as a part of this experience, just like the wise men brought gifts to Jesus, you’re invited to bring an ornament that represents you or your family and hang it on one of our designated WCC Community Trees. We encourage you to write your family’s name on it. We hope this tree becomes a beautiful reminder of the community and love that WCC brings into all of our lives, even in a year when we can’t all be together as easily as before.
As we begin Christmas week, from Sunday, December 20 through Wednesday, December 23, come and watch the Christmas story come to life with special LIVE elements!
Please enter The Christmas Story in Lights from Wayzata Boulevard at the Wayzata West Middle School parking lot to begin the tour. Greeters will be available to welcome you and answer questions you may have. We hope that this new experience will bring the peace, hope, joy and love of the season to you and your family.
A free-will offering will be taken at the end of the experience to benefit our Christmas Offering recipient, Community Emergency Service (CES).
As part of “The Christmas Story in Lights” we will be taking a free will offering at the exit to benefit Community Emergency Service (CES). CES provides high-quality direct service to people in need. The goal of CES is to help move people beyond crisis to financial stability, as well as emotional health, personal growth and spiritual depth.
Each month, CES distributes about 23 tons of food through all of the CES food distributions. This food is donated by congregations, organizations, foundations, partner food banks and individuals or has been purchased from local food banks, often at a reduced rate. As we head into the colder winter months, and with the rising cases of Covid in our state, our financial support is more important than ever to be able to reach families in need. CES was founded in 1971 and continues to serve neighbors of all races, religious backgrounds and ethnicities in their places of deepest need.
