We'VE MOVED — temporarily!

The Downtown Campus is now gathering on Sundays at the Hyatt Regency Hotel at 1200 Lousiana while the owners of 1010 Lamar repair some flooding issues in our worship center space. Watch for updates here and on social media in the weeks ahead!

  • For the entire month of April, we will gather at 11a at the Hyatt Regency Hotel (Regency Room on the second floor) for live worship and a message from Pastor Gregg Matte.
LIFE BIBLE STUDIES
  • Life Bible Studies will gather at 9:30a at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in the 6th Floor Conference Rooms (with the exception of those that currently meet elsewhere).

  • Curbside on Downtown streets (free on Sundays) 
  • Surface lots (at your own expense)
  • Valet parking (at your own expense)

DIRECTIONS FROM 1010 LAMAR

The Hyatt is located about 0.3 mile from 1010 Lamar — about a 6 minute walk. If you park in the garage at 1010 Lamar:

  • Walk out of the garage and go right on Fannin.
  • Turn Left on Dallas and walk 4 blocks to Louisiana.
  • The Hyatt Regency is located on Louisiana between Dallas and Polk.

On Sundays, look for Downtown Campus volunteers in their green Welcome Team shirts or in black t-shirts with a green church logo. They'll be stationed at key points to help you find where you're going!


Welcome to Downtown!

Downtown has come a long way since Houston's First was founded there in 1841. It's even changed since we moved from Downtown to our campus at The Loop in 1977. But one thing hasn't changed: the need for the Good News of Jesus Christ.

In 2011, Houston's First went back to where we started when we opened our Downtown Campus on the lower level of 1010 Lamar — the office tower on the block where we ministered to the city for generations and the location of HighPoint Bible Study. Between the METRORail and Discovery Green, the campus positions us to minister to residents who live Downtown and along the current and future METRORail lines.
