Christmas Luncheon

The Christmas Luncheon has become a cherished tradition within our Senior Adult Ministry at FBC Longview. Held every December, it serves as a heartfelt expression of our gratitude for the seniors who hold a special place in our community.

At this delightful gathering, our dedicated kitchen team prepares a sumptuous meal for our seniors to enjoy. 

The occasion is filled with joyous songs, engaging games, uplifting words from our pastoral staff, and abundant fellowship around the tables. With its nostalgic Christmas ambiance, this event perfectly captures the spirit of the holiday season.
