Jesus Christ is not just in heaven. He's also right here in this world. In the Bible (Matthew 25:31-46), Jesus said that he still walks among us disguised as a hungry or thirsty person, a prisoner, a patient in a hospital or nursing home, a refugee, or an immigrant. And Jesus promised us in the Bible that if we are kind to people like this, it's just like doing a kindness for Jesus himself.
So if we want to keep Christ in Christmas, it's as easy as feeding the hungry, or welcoming a newcomer to our community. There are a lot of ways that you can do that at First Presbyterian Church. Click on our Serve Locally tab to find out the ways you can serve a hot meal for our hungry neighbors or provide shelter for Columbia's homeless residents.
Or worship with us on Sunday morning! There are people from all over the world at our 9:00 AM and 11:00 AM worship services. In addition, a Korean Presbyterian congregation meets in our facility, as well as the Agape African Christian fellowship.
