- Walk out of the garage and go right on Fannin.
- Go right on Dallas and walk 4 blocks to Louisiana.

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.
LIFE BIBLE STUDIES
At Houston's First, Life Bible Studies are the primary method for connecting with others and growing together. We invite you to explore the available Downtown Life Bible Studies and visit soon!
