Hope for the Holidays - 'A Home Away From Home' — "Hope for the Holidays" is an evening of drama, music and light refreshment and Hope Church. Performances will take place at 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Tickets are $7.
Life gets so busy around Christmas. There’s always more to do but with less time. Managing a family and work is enough, and “to do” lists never seem to get done. In the flurry of activity we can lose focus on what or who is most important to us. Meet Megan Kessler, co-owner of the Kessler Inn. Megan doesn’t miss a thing. In this dramatic story, we see Megan begin to lose her way, but someone goes to great lengths to get her attention and help her to wake up.
