   Putnam Baptist Church Presents “The True Meaning of Christmas” – A Christmas Drive-Thru on December 7th (6:30-8:30pm) and December 8th & 9th (6:00-8:30pm). This is a great opportunity for you to bring your family and experience the true Reason for the Season without even leaving your car! With over 130 cast members involved, Putnam will take you through the story of Christmas and the life of Jesus in a unique and creative presentation. They will also have free entertainment, popcorn, hot chocolate, and restroom facilities available while you wait. If you are in a hurry, we have something NEW this year. You will have the option to “Park and Ride”. We have created a “fast pass” in which you have the option to skip the lines and ride in one of our 15-passenger shuttles when you arrive on campus. All traffic will be cut off at the road at 8:30pm. Whoever is in line by this time, will be able to see the Drive Thru. We hope you can join us this weekend as we celebrate Christ through this incredible experience!
