We're hosting this free event for families that call First Hurst home to help little ones celebrate the wonder of Jesus, who became God's gift to us. Serving as the quarterly Parents Night Out event, Holiday Hoopla also gives parents a prime Friday evening opportunity to get some shopping done or celebrate Christmas with their Connection group. Preschoolers will learn about The Shephered's Story and receive The Shepherd on the Search as they celebrate Christmas at the church. Grade school kids head over to Keller Pointe for an indoor swim party!
