"I have to admit, the experience last year was by far the best experience of lights and show that my family and I have every seen. So coming in this year, my expectations were so high. The show this year had love written all over it. I liked the lights, the separate little functions, and the main attraction. Everything looked beautiful."

"I invited my younger sister and her two grandchildren, they are all none church attending individuals. The kids are 5 & 8, they can read & they read the questions on the big red signs. They asked for the answer regarding “Why is Jesus referred to or known as the Messiah”? I loved this moment! It peaked their curiosity! I’m hopeful they will visit church some more in the days, weeks & months to come."

"I’m so glad we went. I have a teenager that doesn’t want to go anywhere but we told him that we were doing this as a family. He enjoyed every single moment, even clapping in the main event. He’s exited and intrigued and wants to go to a service with us. It showed the real meaning of Christmas, the one that’s never mentioned, the birth of Jesus and the kids learned that is not only Santa Claus, there’s so much more. Thank you for the experience!!!"
