White Elephant Party

Christian Life Center's White Elephant Party is a church-wide favorite for all ages. The event kicks off with a delicious dinner offering barbecue beef sandwiches, potato salad, coleslaw, baked beans, desserts, and beverages.

Each person brings a gift for the White Elephant game. Adults bring a gift for another adult and children bring a gift for a child. Each person is given a number. The person with the number "1" selects a gift from a table. The second participant can either choose a gift that someone else has chosen; or, they can select a gift off a table.

The game gets exciting as participants select a good gift from someone else or take their chance at the gift table. Game play continues until everyone has received a gift; Some gifts are nice, practical gifts, such as a blanket or it might be a gag gift, such as a toilet seat! This event is truly a church-wide favorite. The White Elephant Party occurs every year around the Christmas season.
