We invite you to celebrate the season with us by joining us at Christmas BLVD!
Christmas BLVD is a weekend family-oriented holiday experience for all generations. We are excited to offer this event FREE to the community and we are hopeful to draw over 10,000 people to this year's event with the addition of Thursday night.
Our campus will be transformed into "Christmas BLVD," decked out with a giant Christmas tree, decorations and lights as festive music plays in the background. Everywhere you look there will be some new feast for your eyes and in some cases, your stomach. There will be food trucks, a climbing wall, fresh cotton candy and kettle corn being made, sledding hills made of real snow, a horse-drawn carriage, a train, inflatables and carnival rides, woodworking demonstrations, snow falling gently, nightly concerts in the Worship Center and so much more!
We are excited to bring back this year A Walk Through Bethlehem. You’ll have the opportunity to walk through the recreated streets of this tiny village where one birth changed the world. The live nativity scene will include real animals and costumed characters from the little town of Bethlehem.
Also returning this year is The Marketplace. Check off some of your last-minute gift purchases by supporting marginalized people locally and globally through products offered by a variety of non-profit organizations.
Invite your friends, family, neighbors and co-workers and join us for a fun and festive time together as a community!

This year, we’re collecting clothing and food items for neighbors far and near. Clothes of all sizes donated this season will be sent to Mongolia where our Christian partners will give them to families who have fled from North Korea and live in deep poverty outside the city. Your personal clothing and shoes will be given in Jesus name to bring relief and an opportunity for them to hear the gospel. Some of the clothes are also sold at a thrift store that employs persecuted Mongolian believers and funds a ministry for an entire year.
At the same time we provide food, clothing and helpful resources to families in need in our community. Donated food items will go to prepare weekly nourishing meals for families at El Dorado motel, the homeless in La Palma Park and given to those that come daily to our Good Samaritan Center. Food items such as cans of stew, chili, tuna, chicken or fruit; pasta, peanut butter, boxes of crackers, hamburger helper, oatmeal packets, mac & cheese, and mashed or scalloped potatoes are particularly needed.
The collection bins are located in the Chapel parking lot and open for contributions on Sunday mornings, during office hours (8am–5pm M–F), and at Christmas Blvd. Donations will be collected until January 7, 2018.
From the bluesy Americana sounds of PawnShop kings (THU) to the harmoniously hysterical doo-wop of The Alley Cats (FRI) to the jazzy soul of AJ DeGrasse (SAT) to a traditional Christmas sing-along with members of our EvFree family (SUN), you are sure to enjoy a variety of seasonal musical expressions. Two nightly 35-minute concerts at 6:00pm and 8:00pm.
