Event Description

December 10, 2013 Updated Dec 10, 2013 at 11:20 AM EDT

The First Presbyterian Church of Van Wert will host their Christmas open house “An Old Fashioned Christmas” on Sunday, December 22, from 4 to 6 p.m.

Fun, food, music and fellowship will be found Sunday afternoon as the church opens its doors to welcome all as we celebrate together the true meaning of Christmas. This will be the church’s first year for a Christmas Open House and we hope to make this celebration a yearly tradition.

To help create the Christmas feeling; the church sanctuary, Scott Chapel, Franz Room, narthex, corridors and fellowship hall will be decorated with many new decorations especially for our open house. The Presbyterian Church is one of Van Wert’s finest examples of 15th century Gothic architecture which features grand spires, flying buttresses, ribbed vaulting, lancet arches and 22 beautiful stained glass windows.

Guests may enjoy light refreshments, take a guided tour to learn the stories of each of the stained glass windows, take photos, share with your children in a kid’s themed activity with Felicia Quaintance, our children and family activities director or just sit, listen and enjoy music by members of our chancel choir and several other community musicians. Harriet Schaadt, Music Program Director and David Van Tilburg, chancel choir director, will have live, continuous Christmas music and carols filling the air!

Please plan to join us on December 22nd to experience this wonderful Advent season together. First Presbyterian Church is located at the corner of Washington and Crawford Streets. For more information, please contact the church office at: 419-238-3670.
