Dear Houston's First family,

Christmas at Houston's First has always been special, and this year is no exception. We are bringing a brand new Christmas experience to Houston's First with The Story - SnowGlobe, and we want you to be a part of it.

Whether traditions, songs, foods or festivities, we all have our favorites when it comes to Christmas. Here at Houston's First, you might just hear, see, smell, or taste one of your favorite things as The Story - SnowGlobe unfolds right before your very eyes.

Minister of Worship & Arts


Houston's First Baptist Church invites you to experience The Story this Christmas at The Loop Campus with three presentations to choose from.



*Childcare is available during the 7p presentations for birth-3 years old. Learn more


A musical journey from tradition to the true meaning of Christmas, The Story - SnowGlobe is told through the perspective of four different globes, each with its unique view of this wintery celebration. You will enjoy many familiar Christmas songs filled with warmth and hope, as well as others that are sure to be new Christmas favorites. Some interactive elements submerge the audience into the scenes and give them opportunities to be a part of telling the story. With characters, dancers, choir and live musicians, the fun of Christmas is sure to entertain even our smallest audience members.


Guests attending The Story - SnowGlobe are also invited to experience Wonderland, a fun-filled festival presented by our NextGen Ministries. Take pictures with Christmas characters, create holiday crafts, decorate fresh-baked cookies, and adventure through our interactive Christmas Wonderland. Wonderland opens 90 minutes before each presentation of The Story, and will remain open for 1 hour. Admission is included with your ticket to the The Story - SnowGlobe

Wonderland is only open to guests with tickets to The Story. Separate tickets cannot be purchased only for Wonderland.

The Oaks

Legacy 68:5 is thrilled to announce the opening of The Oaks, an integrative care center.

Tickets are required for admission to The Story and can be presented on a mobile device or printed out. If available, tickets can be purchased at the Box Office in the Fitness and Recreation Center prior to each presentation. Tickets also grant admission to Wonderland

The Story runs 1.5 hours and does not have an intermission. Woship Center doors open one hour before the presentation. We recommend arriving one hour prior to the presentation to allow plenty of time for parking, picturetaking, and to stop by CornerBooks. The arrival time for Wonderland is 90 minutes before each presentation. Please finish your food and drinks before entering the Worship Center.

Parking is available in the church's West and South parking lots.


As a courtesy to others, we ask that guests register for childcare for children too young to sit quietly during The Story. If you choose to take your child to the presentation, all children ages 2 and older must have their own ticket. Children under the age of 2 do not need a ticket, but must sit in an adult's lap.

Childcare is available during the 7p presentations on Friday and Saturday nights for birth-3 years old. Childcare opens one hour prior to the presentations and is provided by paid and certified employees of Houston's First.

Childcare is $15 per child. Registration can be made at the time of ticket purchase or in a separate transaction. Please have the child's birth date available when registering. Registration closes at 11:59p on Thu, Nov 30.
