Dear Friends,

Thank you so much for your interest in Christmas Day at the Citadel Stadium!

Christmas will be here before we know it.  As has been the case since 2011, we will be having a gigantic Birthday Party for Jesus at the Citadel Stadium on Christmas Day.

We would apprecitate you coming and celebrating with us!  The party will involve thousands of guests and volunteers from numerous churches and organizations in loving Jesus for His birthday in word and in deed.  It is an amazing show of unity and love seeing all the people together with many pastors and leaders from various walks of life.  Festivities will include:

Christmas Dinner for everyone
Bicycles for the kids who come
A carnival
A section just to bless our veterans
A choir and numerous music groups and messages at one of our 5 sound systems
Christmas gifts wrapped in shoe boxes
Clothing, coats and blankets

We need volunteers to show up at one of 2 shifts at either 11 am or 2:30 pm.  We also need help setting up on Christmas Eve.  PLEASE SIGN UP AHEAD OF TIME AT OUR WEBSITE.  VOLUNTEERS WHO DO NOT PRE- REGISTER ARE ENCOURAGED TO COME ON CHRISTMAS DAY, BUT MAY NOT HAVE AN OFFICAL POSITION OF SERVICE.

Children volunteers are welcome, but age 12 and under must be supervised by their parents for the duration of the event.

If you and your and your friends want to work together as a group.  I would like to kindly suggest that you would bring an activity or gifts to offer and set up a table (we provide if needed) to work it.  We are encouraging groups to bring their own activities like a game or craft for kids, something to appreciate veterans, a tree people can make and hang decorations on for cancer awareness, a dog to pet, etc. and serve together.  You can bring gifts to give away, baked cookies to serve and more.  The sky is the limit.  Please let us know if you would like to set up your own area and what you will need.  If not, there will be plenty of other volunteer activities.  PLEASE SIGN UP AT THE WEBSITE TO INDICATE THIS UNDER "BRING OUR OWN ACTIVITY".

We are also looking for hair stylists and barbers, medical personnel, singers, dances, actors, clowns, and any other people who would like to offer a special service.

We are collecting new and/ or used bicycles and shoe box gifts (see Birthday Party for Jesus website )

We would also appreciate it if you could bring a disposable pan with food like rice, ham, dressing, macaroni and cheese or greens.  Again, all of this is not necessary, but it would help the event. If you do not set up your own area, please let us know where you would like to serve and we can give your contact info to the proper leader.

Please see the attached items which explain ways to be involved.  Feel free to sign up to volunteer at the website.
