A Home for Christmas

Beginning at 10:00 AM on Christmas Day, we will once again open the doors of our church building to host our 3nd annual “A Home for Christmas.” This event, which provides a warm and welcoming place for the homeless of Olympia, was birthed out of question, “Where can people go if they have no home for Christmas?” While many of the city’s services provide a meal later on the day, the homeless of our community are forced to get creative for the many hours leading up until that time. “A Home for Christmas” is our attempt at a little Christmas hospitality.

The doors will open at 10:00 AM with coffee, snacks, and Christmas movies to follow for the rest of the early afternoon. At 4 PM, our traditional Christmas turkey dinner will be served with all the fixings over at 1st Baptist Church of Olympia. To end the day, there will be plenty of dessert and Christmas presents to go around. The day’s activities will wrap up around 8 PM so that all the final cleaning of the building won’t go too late into the evening.

If you are available for an hour or all day, please come by and lend a helping hand. We still need help with all phases of the day- prep work, cooking, serving, or just hanging out and being a friendly face. It’s our desire to live as the servants and family that Christ’s death has accomplished for us. For more information, please contact the church office at (360) 584-8028.

Thanks to all the many volunteers, churches, and businesses that have helped to make this event a success!

  1. Hello,

    My family attends New Bridge Community Church. In response to an insert in our programs, my daugther called Cody Simmons to get a list of specific needs for the “A Home for Christmas” event on Christmas Day.

    We have purchased several childrens’ coats, hats gloves,; boy’s & men’s socks and hats, in addition to several other items that Cody recommended or said you could use.

    I would like to bring the items to you and see if there is any other way we can help. New Bridge serves at First Baptist on the 4th Sunday of the month and we are honored to serve dinner on Christmas Day this year.

    Sincerely,

    Peggy Karr

    • It was great to meet you this afternoon Peggy! Thanks for dropping the coats, gloves and everything by this afternoon! I love to see the church working together for the things that God is passionate for!
