Doors to the museum open at 6 PM and exhibits will be available to guests throughout the evening. Appetizers will be available at 6 PM. Dinner will be served at 7 PM.

If you came to last year’s dinner, this will be even better! We’re adding the simulator (for those who want to go for a ride) and some other additions that will make for a great evening!

I hope you and your team will be joining us this year for our regional Christmas banquet dinner. We’ve rented out the Air and Space Museum and are excited to take an evening to fellowship together in this unique venue.

Hampton Roads has been the launchpad for numerous space-related endeavors. At this venue, we’ll be surrounded by aviation exhibits and historic aircraft from the Bell P-39Q “Airacobra” to the Apollo 12 Command Module!

While the world has watched and celebrated these scientific achievements, we come together for an even greater purpose: a Gospel partnership! This Christmas season, the Gospel of Jesus Christ will be proclaimed in churches throughout our region. You and your church are an important part of that.

So invite your team, and let’s gather for this special meal at the Hampton Air and Space Museum as we celebrate the birth of Christ.
