Polar Express Party
This idea was shared by Nyla Miller of Sandy Utah. She said, I have been in Activities for 4 years and never have I had a Christmas Party as well attended as this. The children and parents were all excited about it and brought their family, neighbors, and friends. Our destination was the sprit of Christ and with a big emphases on BELIEVE.
