A Labyrinth is a sacred path, a pilgrimage. A chance to meditate and commune with the Divine. This ancient tool of transformation has only one path, unlike a maze, and allows the walker to make their way to the center, releasing that which does not serve. The walker will fill up and allow illumination at the center, before journeying outward with a deeper sense of union and understanding of The Sacred.
The Labyrinth at FCCNH is a Chartres design Labyrinth. One of the most famous examples of a Chartres Labyrinth is at Chartres Cathedral in The Loire Valley, France. Our Chartres is 36 feet in diameter and allows for numerous walkers to journey, all at the same time. A Labyrinth walk is extremely personal to the walker, and as such, no one can tell you how to 'do' a labyrinth, merely give suggestions for the road. All are always welcome.
First Christian Church of North Hollywood is delighted offer a Sunday afternoon series of Concerts. These Sunday concerts are a wonderful opportunity to relax, enjoy beautiful music, and to be inspired by the talents of truly gifted musicians. Musical Sunday afternoons provide great music that can bring people together and delight the increasing audiences with some of the best music you can hear in Los Angeles. Each season there is an exciting kaleidoscope of musical gems, which keeps us looking forward to some wonderful concerts and musical treasure hunts. Please join us often in our beautiful sanctuary to be uplifted and blessed. Please check back for the next concert date!

Holiday Boutique & Silent Auction
Thank you to all our vendors and shoppers that came to the 2012 Holiday Boutique!! We look forward to seeing you again in 2013. FCCNH hosts an annual Boutique & Silent Auction. Our Social Hall is abuzz with holiday feel with vendors ranging from jewelry, artwork, skincare, children’s books and toys and the ever popular Michigan Cherry Salsa and Jam. Along with that we have a Silent Auction with items such as gift cards, dvds, artwork, electronics and tickets to local attractions. For the budget conscious, there are Opportunity Drawings throughout the Boutique.
Faith In Films
During the months of July and August we view films during the regular Monday Night Bible Study time slot. Films are selected not simply for their entertainment value, but also for their thought value. A theme is selected for the season and films are chosen to appeal to a broad viewership. We include animated, classic, foreign as well a newer films, then we engage in conversation about how these stories speak to our faith and values. Also during the Christmas season we show well-known holiday films. There is never a charge to see the movies, and of course popcorn is provided!
