The RHEMA Christmas Lights Display was introduced in 1982 with approximately 60,000 lights. This year, more than two million lights will illuminate the RHEMA campus from Thanksgiving Eve through New Year’s Day from 5:30 to 11:30 p.m.
This year’s display is expected to draw more than 200,000 visitors from all over Oklahoma and surrounding states.
A centerpiece of the display each year is the RHEMA Park bridge. This year, more than 90,000 lights will shine on the bridge alone. These lights will again be synchronized to Christmas music—both classic and modern.
There are several ways to view the display. Visitors can drive around the RHEMA campus in their car, walk around campus and through the park, or take a carriage ride. Horse-drawn carriage rides will be available (weather permitting) on the following dates:
December 2–3, 9–10, 16–25
Carriage rides are $10 for each adult and $5 for each child. Or visitors can get a Family Pack, which includes up to two adults and an unlimited number of children, for $25.
RHEMA’s Christmas Lights Display is designed to provide a safe, peaceful, and fun atmosphere in which people can enjoy the Christmas season, and to point visitors to the love of Christ and the real meaning of Christmas.
Admission to Rhema’s Christmas lights extravaganza is free, but visitors who would like to see even more spectacular LED lights next year will have the opportunity to donate toward the display. A portion of all donations received will go to local charities.
Concession food and pictures with Santa will be sold by AXIS® Youth, the youth ministry of RHEMA Bible Church. On those cold nights, a cup of hot chocolate or coffee will warm you up as you walk through the display. Popcorn, funnel cake, and other foods will also be available.
Pictures with Santa will be available for $5 each or three for $10. Santa will be available for pictures at the following times:
Every Friday and Saturday, November 25–December 17
Friday, December 23
