Christmas at First Hurst

Our First Hurst Christmas events are limited this year due to COVID, but it's still going to be an extraordinary season of worship. You can explore our Christmas Service Schedule below, or jump straight to Christmas Events.

Christmas Message Series

Contact Jason Meyer

December 6-20

As wonderful as it is, Christmas arouses deep fear in a great many people. Yet, more than 2,000 years ago, before Christmas would become the hurried frenzy it is today, God spoke into the darkness of man's soul these cherished, life-giving words:  "Fear not." In this time of year that inspires so much fear, we'll explore the familiar Christmas narrative with a focus on God's repeated "Fear not" message. For these are the very words He still whispers to our spirits even today. Christmas this year can be one in which the fears we face fade to the background in the light of God's promises and truth.

Reservations can be made online or by calling the church office Monday-Thursday, 9am-5pm. Due to COVID, we will not be able to provide childcare at any of our Christmas Eve services. Each service will also be live streamed.
