Mountain Heights called it Operation Evergreen and it has been taking place for more than 15 years now. It was created to provide a special holiday for certain families from the local mission and the Buena Vista Pregnancy Center. One of the parishioners displayed his special train set for the guests to watch. Previously, the families had given the church a Christmas wish list. First, they were served breakfast. Next, everyone was guided into the sanctuary for some Christmas carols. After the music, the families had pictures taken in front of the tree. The picture was meant to fit into the ornaments. There was more food available. Finally, along with their presents, they were given a tree with lights and additional ornaments to decorate with. An event like this is the reason for the season, and I am so glad I could a part of it this year.
