Church hosts second family-friendly holiday event

SEQUIM — Newlife Church in Sequim is throwing a Jingle Jam Family Christmas celebration to kick off the first day of winter break for Sequim schools.

The party will be from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday at the cafeteria at Sequim Middle School, 301 W. Hendrickson Road, and features a Christmas Carnival with crafts, games for children and Santa Claus to hand out candy canes.

“It’s a really fun family event,” said David Lyke, Newlife Church campus lead. “It’s one of the things we love to do for the community.”

Lyke said the event is geared toward preschool and elementary school children up to fifth grade but middle-schoolers are also welcome.

He said there are Christmas-themed crafts and entertainment for children such as creating ornaments for the Christmas tree and making edible snowmen.

Second annual event

This is the church’s second year hosting the event and Lyke said last year there was a gathering of more than 70 people.

“We’re hoping for a great turnout,” he said.

Newlife Church also is hosting a Christmas Eve gathering at 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 24, at the Sequim Middle School cafeteria.
