St. Mark's Episcopal Church

Newaygo, Michigan, USA

Downtown Newaygo Christmas Walk


The church offered a station on the community Christmas Walk—inviting everyone to learn about the real Saint Nicholas in four stations.
1) St. Nicholas himself greeted everyone in the sanctuary, telling his stories and giving each person a small bag with a candy cane, gold chocolate coins, chocolate kisses, and a prayer card.
2) Then folks went downstairs for St. Nicholas displays and activities.
3) Another stop had hot chocolate, cookies, and a short St. Nicholas video.
4) Back up to the Parish Hall for St. Nicholas activities and coloring pages.

"They all learned so much and said, 'I never knew about the real St. Nicholas— this was great!!'"
