Yule Feast 2012

Our Yule Feast, scheduled for 5:00 pm on Saturday evening, January 7, 2012, attracts about 250 medieval costumed adults, youth, children, members and friends of our church family. It offers us a kaleidoscope of sights, sounds, aromas and an extraordinary experience of Christian community.

In keeping with tradition, our celebrating begins in the Family Room with fanfare toasts, The Pigplay and the traditional Yule Log presentation. Spicy Wassail is served to the accompaniment of the Wassail Carol, traditional Christmas Carols and medieval music.

Courtyard entertainment with colorful flying acrobats, lofty stilt walkers and traditional medieval children’s games will delight and amaze you while the Yule Feast Silent Auction will entice you to bid on the many treats and services in the Thornhill Room.

Festive Christmas Greens, colorful banners, candles, ribbons and the holiday spirit transforms the sanctuary magically into a medieval banquet hall complete with roaming Magi (three wise women) to challenge you with mysteries and inquiries of the season! Madrigals and musicians entertain us during the sumptuous meal served in the traditional family-style by hosts and hostesses. Following dinner we continue the revelry with music, merriment and interactive entertainment.
