LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — More than 200 kids and parents got to meet Santa a few days early this year.

On Saturday, Immanuel United Church of Christ in Lafayette hosted a breakfast with Santa. Kids enjoyed snowman-shaped pancakes, crafts, and games. Mrs. Claus even stopped by to read a story.

Event leaders say they wanted to do something to celebrate one of the biggest Christian holidays. The event brought an opportunity to share their resources with the public. Youth Ministry Director, Tari Seeger said that's what the season is all about.

“I think everyone should know Jesus and I think he should live in everyone's heart and I want to spread that love to everyone in the community,” said Seeger.

Seeger hopes families' left with a full stomach and a full heart.

“I hope, if nothing else, they take away the love of Jesus,” said Seeger. “Everyone is welcome no matter where you are in your travels or where you are in life's journey, we're all in different places but everyone is always welcomed.”

This is the first year the church has hosted the event. Seeger plans to make it a church tradition.
