Friends, what a year 2020 has been?! We have all been forced to do things differently, haven't we?!
At Valley View Assembly of God, we believe Christmas is more than a time to "gift" our families and loved ones! It's more than figgy pudding or Christmas movies!!
It's a time to honor the Christ Child's Birth. If it weren't for Jesus, we would have nothing to celebrate!
We have put our heads together and thought of a fun family activity for the Advent season. (Advent is the four (4) weeks leading up to Christmas.)
We are offering a Scavenger Hunt with a Christmas Theme! If you've been looking for a COVID-19 friendly activity to share with your family this Holiday, join in the fun!!
Here is how it works: 1) There will be a special ornament hidden each week during Advent.
2) Check the following areas, each week, for a clue to help you find it. Here are the sites: Valley View Assembly of God website (VVAGLC.org) Valley View AG FaceBook page Valley View Kid's Crusade FaceBook page Lake City Chamber of Commerce website (LakeCity.org) Lake City Graphic Lake City Shopper
The clues will be posted on these places each week on the following dates: Tuesday, December 1st Tuesday, December 8th Tuesday, December 15th Tuesday, December 22nd
3) If you find the ornament, return it to Valley View Assembly of God Church (305 West Grant Street, Lake City, Minnesota) where you can exchange it for a child's gift AND a Christmas ham for your family. The church office is open from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM Monday through Friday. One gift and one ham will be given away each week.
4) Search the next week's clue to see if the ornament was found each week! *Please note: Only one ornament per household will be accepted.
Here is your first clue: There was an old historic place; Like the inn from our story Mary and Joseph brought Baby Jesus; He became the King of Glory. Lake City had an inn; But now it's just a mystery. No longer standing tall; It's only a part of history.
Have fun searching and have a Merry Christmas from your friends at Valley View Assembly of God!!!
