"Love Came Down at Christmas" — Advent & Christmas Events at Old First

The story of Christmas is the story of love coming down. And our job is to spread it further. In the hubbub and busy-ness that we all succumb to during the weeks leading up to December 25, it’s good to carve out time to remember what the season is really all about. So stop by Old First this holiday season during any of our numerous holiday events.

Christmas is also a great time to invite someone to join you at church. Because folks get blue at this time of year. Or because they may be more open to experiencing what church offers.

Christmas at Old First is always a beautiful, heart-warming occasion. Check out these photos from last year.
