Tree Lighting


In typical country fashion you can travel from one location to the next either by foot or on an amazing Goodman Farms hayride. As you travel through the village you will be encouraged to join in singing some of your favorite Christmas carols. Sit back and enjoy this relaxing trip through our beautiful little village.

Family Pictures
with Santa

Santa Claus is coming to town! He and his beautiful wife want to get a nice family photo with you. The only thing he asks of everyone is that they bring one canned good that he can donate to the food pantry. Mr and Mrs. Claus will be around from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.


Kids in grades K-5 can show off their artistic creativity by entering the coloring competition. Coloring sheets will be judged in three age categories- K-1st grade, 2nd-3rd grade, and 4th-5th grade. Each age category will have a first, second, and third prize winner! Winners will be announced at the community tree lighting. Download the coloring sheet by clicking on the link below to get started at home, and bring your completed work of art to Wilson FBC between 3:00 and 4:45 on December 8. Or, stop in the church fellowship hall during Country Christmas and take some time to color your sheet right in the church.
