Why is this event being held?
The ministry of Great Awakenings holds a Christmas Story Dinner & Concert each year in a different restaurant and county in Kansas. We’ve seen hundreds of people fill restaurants in our four events. Our simple goal is to be a blessing to the restaurant customers and community the best way we know how, which is through a top-notch Christmas concert, the best food around and by sharing an inspirational message from the good news of Jesus.
Is the free meal for anyone?
Yes. Anyone who walks into the restaurant will be offered the dinner special at no charge by the servers. If you choose not to have the special and want order something else, you can do that too, but that will be at your cost. We also we want to be a blessing to the servers so whether someone order the special or not, we ask that people provide a generous Christmas-tip to their servers.
Who can come to the concert?
Anyone! If you live in California or New York and want to make the drive, we’d love to have you. If you are a restaurant regular, we’d love to have you. If you live in the area or a surrounding town, come on over. Whoever you are and wherever you live, come but don’t come alone, bring a friend with you.
Can you buy a Cloverton CD or other items they may have?
Yes. Cloverton will have a special table set up for anyone who wants to purchase any of their music or other items.
