Christmas at First 2023

Thank you for joining us for Christmas at First 2023! If you’d like to rewatch the music and drama presentation, simply click the video below.

Here’s a quick wrap-up video that encapsulates the event.

Kick off the Christmas season at First Baptist Church of Elyria! Bring the whole family out for an evening of music, drama, a live nativity, crafts, and snacks. On Friday, December 8th and Saturday, December 9th, the program will repeat at 6:00pm and 7:30pm, so you can choose whichever time works for your family. Doors open 25 minutes before the start of each showtime. This is an indoor event, so there’s no need to worry about the cold Ohio weather.


  • Friday, December 8th at 6:00pm (Doors Open at 5:35pm)
  • Friday, December 8th at 7:30pm (Doors Open at 7:05pm)
  • Saturday, December 9th at 6:00pm (Doors Open at 5:35pm)
  • Saturday, December 9th at 7:30pm (Doors Open at 7:05pm)

No registration or tickets necessary — just attend the showtime that works best for your schedule.

We will have crafts for the kids and snacks and hot chocolate for all.
