Christmas at First Baptist Arlington

Christmas at First Baptist Arlington

Christmas is such a special time of year!  And we want to invite you to Christmas at First Baptist Arlington! We call our celebration Advent – a term used by the church that refers to the waiting and arrival of Christ.  For us, Christmas is what gives our faith – and in turn our lives – meaning.  It shows us God loves us and sent a way for us to know Him, and that God wants to be involved in our lives!

At First Baptist, we have a place for you this holiday season!  We have many family-friendly free events for you, your family and friends. We have events like movie nights, musicals, story time and more.  Check out our list below and plan on joining us this Christmas season! We look forward to seeing you at Christmas at First Baptist Arlington!
