Higher Ground is hosting a Christmas benefit concert for Westminster Neighborhood Services starting 6:45 p.m. Dec. 19 at Harvest Bible Chapel Indy West, 420 Gable Crossing Drive in Avon!


Spend the holidays with the Grimes family as they share some of their favorite family traditions with you.  The Higher Ground holiday concert, affectionately titled "Come Home for Christmas," is filled with wonderful arrangements of the some of the best Christmas classics of all time, including "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" and "O Holy Night," as well as several recently released songs that help families focus on Christ. 


Higher Ground’s set starts at 7:30 p.m., but you can join us beforehand for some Christmas fun! There will be a photo booth, a live nativity scene, Christmas ornaments and holiday drinks for purchase. This event is free with monetary donations or canned food donations accepted at the door.
