    New Heart Fellowship Church will once again be hosting “Santa Land” on December 8, 2019, For years now, Santa Land has been a way to help families celebrate Christmas in Ashley and the surrounding area. Each year, the Ashley Community Building is decorated into a Winter Wonderland. The local community has been instrumental in making this happen.

    We have Santa there to greet the kids and have pictures taken with each child. The children also receive a gift from Santa along with a hat, mittens, scarf or socks, an ornament, small treat and a drink and a Bible to take home. Last year, we had 134 kids come through Santa Land. The parents are also able to enter drawings for gift baskets as well. All of these things are at no cost to the families.
