12/20/20 Christmas Carol Hymn Sing
With fewer holiday gatherings, Christmas concerts, and other group functions that may have Christmas music on in the background, this may be the year that we don't ever tire of our favorite Christmas songs. In fact, we may not even have the opportunities to hear them all. To remedy this, we hope you'll join us for our Christmas Carol Hymn Sing!

The video will premiere on our Facebook page at 2 p.m.

12/27/20 Christmas Carol Hymn Sing REPRISE
Join us as we continue to celebrate the Christmas season with a reprise of our Christmas Carol Hymn Sing!

This video will re-premiere on our Facebook page at 2 p.m. with some fun new additions.

1/3/21 The Mystery of the Christmas Star
Join us for a special presentation by the Houston Museum of Natural Science exploring the science behind the mysterious Christmas star. What kind of star was it? What do we know about it? Explore these questions and bring some of your own as there will be a Q&A session after the presentation.

This event will be on Zoom. Email Bethany Podgorny at for the Zoom link.
