Christmas Party 2015 at Doddridge County Park

Nazareth Farm once again hosted its annual community Christmas party on December 12th at Doddridge County Park. The day was filled with great games, crafts, music, food, snacks, conversation, and, of course, a visit by Santa and Mrs. Claus. Lots of fun and merriment were had by all. We would like to give a special thanks to all of our volunteers who gave their time to help us out, to those whose donations make events like this possible, to Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, and Twinkles the Elf, and to everyone who came out to celebrate Christmas with us.

A New Blog and a Year of Projects

Nazareth Farm is excited to launch our new blog that will appear here on our new website! This blog will be a place to share reflections, photos, your lyrics to “review of the day” songs, and whatever else you feel belongs on a Nazareth Farm blog. The staff will be writing and creating some content based on our own experiences of living out the four cornerstones year-round. We also invite all of you in our larger Nazareth Farm community to email at with your own reflections, photos, or anything else that you think would be good for our blog, so we can post it here for all to see.

This is also where we will be posting photos of our completed worksites so you can see the progress made since your volunteer week. Below is a photo gallery of just a few of our 40 projects that we’re thankful for completing in 2015. You can click on any of the photos below to scroll through the gallery.
