Join us in December as we revisit Dicken’s classic tale, “A Christmas Carol” that is just as relevant now as it was over a hundred years ago. How many people are “Scrooge-like” when it comes to this season of the year? It is easy to become cynical and disillusioned. This series  will take us on a  journey through our past, our present and our future and how we will respond to the invitation to “keep Christmas” in hearts and spirits.

The Forum Theater is performing, “A Christmas Carol”, their local version of the classic story in our Wilke Family Life Center, November 30- December 17.  (Tickets are available at Excerpts from the performance will also be highlighted in Downtown Alive through December.
