Christmas Time Is Here

Christmas time is here

Happiness and cheer

Fun for all that children call

Their favorite time of year

Not the most familiar song lyric of the Christmas season, but one which brings back memories of children and family. The video Charlie Brown Christmas moves a little slow for the taste of many these days, but isn’t that what Christmas is supposed to be..S L O W…taking in all the sites and sounds; sharing and making memories with family and friends.

On Saturday December 8 we hope to share and make memories with our BMFA family as we celebrate Christmas. The party starts at 5:30 PM and food will be served at 6:00 PM. The dress is casual and we look forward to see all the BMFA family in one place for this one evening.

This year the party will be held at Vision Ministries Retreat Center in South Huntsville. You will be amazed when you see the facility.

Here are directions from BMFA.

  • Head North on US 231

  • Turn Right onto Hobbs Island Road SE

  • Turn Left Onto Hegia Burrow RD SE

  • Turn Left onto Oscar Webster Road SE

When you arrive at the entrance of the property someone will be there to direct you to the most convenient place to park. Our hosts have graciously agreed to provide parking attendants and shuttles to the event center if needed.

Here are detailed instructions to the Lodge from our host:

The Lodge at The Vision:


Take Hobbs Island Road to Hegia Burrow Road. You will cross a set of railroad tracks and then pass the Huntsville Speedway. Turn LEFT on Oscar Webster Road (There is a sign there that says “The Vision”), and after 1/10th of a mile take the gated entrance on your right. There are green and red “Welcome” and “Entrance” banners at this entrance. DO NOT GO TO THE END OF OSCAR WEBSTER ROAD.

Once you turn in the main gate, follow the paved road up the hill; the road will bend to the left. Continue straight and the road will turn from paved to gravel. The Lodge will be in front of you. You may pull up to the building for loading and unloading only. PLEASE PARK AWAY FROM THE BUILDING in the designated area beyond the light pole. Handicapped guests may park in front of the two large garage doors in front of the Banquet Hall. DO NOT BLOCK the drive in front of the Lodge as it is needed for staff and deliveries. Do not park in spaces or use entrances labeled PRIVATE.

The food and other details are planned, now is the time for you to make your final plans to be at Vision Ministry on December 8, 2018 at 5:30 PM.
