A donkey, a sheep and some goats, at 4th & Race in Old City?! The live nativity at Old First Reformed UCC is well known throughout the city. The animals will arrive in our courtyard on Dec. 2. Visit them anytime (24 hours a day!) until the end of December.
And for a really close encounter, come to church on Sunday, December 8 at 12:30 pm for Photos at the Creche Day. You and your family will greet the animals and have your photo taken. Perfect for a Christmas card. Or a gift for Grandma. (Photos will be available for download for free within a few days.)
Bring your kids, your grandkids, your neighbor’s kids or your young-at-heart friends. Our friends at 76 Carriage will take the kids around the block in one of their horse-drawn carriages. And we’ll serve hot chocolate to help warm us up!
Last year’s Photos at the Creche Day (our first such event) was great fun. As one Old Firster put it, the photos are like an Old First Christmas album. Take a look.
Old First has many other events planned throughout the Advent and Christmas season. Please join us!
