As part of Santa’s Workshop Weekend, Wycliffe will be sponsoring and setting up a table full of coloring and DIY (Do It Yourself) crafts for people of all ages. For more than 70 years, Wycliffe has helped people around the world translate the Bible into their own languages. Their Orlando offices are the USA mobilization headquarters, dedicated to U.S. recruiting and marketing for their worldwide Bible translation efforts. The Wycliffe Discovery Center has been in the Lake Nona area for 16 years. It is an interactive experience for people of all ages. Whether you’re five or 75 years old, you’ll enjoy learning about people, languages, and cultures all over the world. Hear amazing stories of how lives are being changed all around the world as God’s Word is translated for those who still need it. Go for a day visit, bring friends, family, or a kid’s group, have lunch in their cafe, and take a tour! They offer lunch, a village gift shop, and a Discovery Center, their museum of Bible translation.
Jesse Stokes, events marketing coordinator, explained why he wanted Wycliffe to take part in Santa’s Workshop: “We want to be a major partner within this community. We have seen it grow exponentially over the last 15 years, and we want to be a part of the continued growth and well-being of this wonderful community.”
Wycliffe will be hosting their first-ever Christmas Around the World event Nov. 26-Dec. 15. All are welcome to visit the Discovery Center any time Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., and enjoy Christmas decorations, crafts, food, and gifts – all inspired by Christmas traditions from around the world! They will be open late select nights with free live entertainment. You can learn more and check out those opening dates at wycliffe.org/christmascelebration. Be sure to stop by the Wycliffe DIY craft booth during Santa’s Workshop Weekend Dec. 7-9 at Lake Nona High School and visit the Discovery Center at Wycliffe any time throughout the year!
