The Christmas time of year is upon us, full of holiday treats, cheer and children’s celebrations. In Boone there is no exception, and the churches are the place to be to enjoy the celebration and joy of the season.
Boone Open Bible Church will be continuing its annual caroling evening at each of the nursing homes and requested residences in Boone.
“The residents there absolutely love when anyone comes to carol for them; they really appreciate it,” says Lisa Hoffman, office administrator at Open Bible.
Carolers will meet at the church around 5 p.m. on Dec. 8. After the songs end and the stops run out, everyone is invited to the annual “Chili Dump” back at the church.
“We’ve always had the dinner afterward,” says Hoffman. “It’s a great thing to all eat together and a good way to end the evening.”

Folks at First Evangelical Free Church would like to invite everyone in the community to join them for their Christmas program, “The Candy Cane,” on Dec. 16 at 9:30 a.m. The performance of students pre-school through 12th grade is filled with drama, song, instruments and dance — a little taste for everyone. Come hear how a simple piece of candy can unfold the true story of Christmas.
