First Presbyterian Church Continues Tradition of Christmas Day Dinner
Christmas Day Dinner at First Presbyterian Church (215 East Lincoln Avenue, Goshen) is a time to celebrate the birth of the Savior, and to share fun, food and fellowship with the community. The dinner, which began in 1998, is open to anyone from the community — singles, couples and families. In 2019, approximately 750 meals were served and/or delivered. The dinner is served at no cost.
If all goes well, the church is planning to serve the dinner again in 2021. Details will be forthcoming closer to late November/early December.
The church doors open at 12:30 pm on December 25. Starting at 1:00 pm, guests are seated and served a traditional holiday meal. Volunteers from First Presbyterian and the Michiana area serve until 2:00 pm. The pastor is available for prayer and spiritual guidance during the event.
No reservations are needed for the dinner served at the church. Carry out is available as well as delivery.
For pre-ordered drive-through carry-out, or delivery, call the church at 533-7845 (Monday through Thursday, 9:00 am-12:00 noon). Important: The last day to reserve meals for delivery is two weeks prior to December 25; for pre-ordered drive-through carry-out, one week prior to Christmas. If there is no one to take your order, please call during office hours.
