For one, the admission cost for the Christmas program is a little different. Non-perishable items will be the ticket to hear the angelic voices on high.
"People can donate and bring food to help those in our community that are less fortunate,"said Pastor Watson of First Baptist.
The canned goods will be given to CISC, an organization which will then distribute all items to the less fortunate for the holidays. The cans have already began to roll in.
The New Beginnings pastor also says, after all the unrest following the recent Ferguson incident, the two congregations wanted to come together and show the community that unity remains strong.
"We want to show here in Lufkin that we do have unity between diverse cultures,"said Steven Pinkney.
"This is the first time that both of these congregations have come together to worship but also to lift up the name of Christ,"said Watson.
The Christmas program is also a bit of a reunion for the two churches. New Beginnings stemmed as a mission from First Baptist church years ago.
"We were birthed out of this church so it's a homecoming for us,"said Pinkney.
The show includes all age groups.
"Oh my God! It's church, and I just love to be there because I love the vibe and how it feels,"said Tyrea Harris, a praise dancer in the program.
The show is to include narration, singing, and praise dancing.
"Just a good time on Sunday night."
You can expect to hear a fusion of holiday choral music and gospel style singing, all in unity, and for a better cause. The program is on Sunday, December 7th at 6:00 p.m.
