Driving to see the lights at Christmastime is a favorite activity for many – no matter the age! Here’s a little guide to some Christmas light display in Savannah (and a few just a short drive away).
Pack up the family and check out some of these great light venues:
Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens: Featuring thousands of lights throughout the gardens, this is a walk-through light display that is sure to delight. Be sure to visit their event page for all the details.
Tybee Island: This year Tybee has a few upcoming events that allow for some lighted festivities.
Join them on Dec 6 for Lights on for Tybee and a Lighted Christmas Parade
December 8th finds them featuring a Lighted Boat Parade.
And the 14th of December is their 12th Annual Tour de Lights (a unique experience of bicycling around Tybee viewing light displays)
You can find all the details on their event page:
or you can check the Facebook page:
TMT Farms: This drive through light display is a great one for the whole family and is on private property out near Statesboro. Plus, canned food items are the admission price. So, you’ll get to see some lights and help others in the process.
You can learn more at their Facebook page: TMT Farms
Guido Gardens: Another favorite that requires a little drive from Savannah. This lovely property in Metter has an annual walk-through Christmas light display. This year’s display doesn’t start till December 13th. Details for the light display can be found at Sower Ministries:

Gather with us on Wednesday, November 7th at 7:00 pm for our church Thanksgiving Dinner! We’ve enjoyed this tradition as a church family for nearly 10 years now. It’s a wonderful evening of celebration, gratitude, and fellowship.
The church will supply the turkey, tea, and water. Each family please bring 2 sides and a dessert. (You can RSVP on the list in the foyer so that we reduce the opportunity to have repeated sides)
More details can be found in the church Facebook group as well.
Are you stuck? Keep dealing with the same issues over and over – week after week – month after month – with no end in sight?
You may be dealing with the FRUIT of the issue and not the ROOT. Join us as we examine some common areas that trip us up and learn how to break free as we deal with the root of the issue.
We’ll be covering topics like:
- Bitter Roots
- Inner Vows
- The Strongmen
- Generational Curses
- Soul Ties
Sundays at 10:30 am
Missed one? You can catch the replays in our Church Facebook Group.
Our next Baptism event will be held Sunday, June 3 at the end of our regularly scheduled service. If you would like to be baptized, please contact Pastor James. He will meet with each baptism candidate to let you know what to expect.

Wednesday nights starting April 26th, we’re offering an opportunity to learn about The Bait of Satan from John Bevere. Each Wednesday, the adult class will dive into short video sessions with John and then couple that with in-house discussion.
There is no fee to attend the course and you will receive a Participant Guide, printable Declarations, and more!
Additionally, you can purchase The Bait of Satan book for just $5.00. The book is not necessary to complete the course, but it greatly enhances what you will learn. Plus, we highly recommend this book for your personal Christian library.
The first session of this course began last Wednesday. We will continue with the second session on Wednesday, May 10th at 7pm.
We still have some books available for $5. Please see Christy on Sundays or Wednesdays to purchase one.
