FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - It was a big birthday celebration for the First Christian Church of Fort Worth Sunday, as its building turned 100 years old.

Mayor Betsy Price was on hand for the festivities, and presented a proclamation during the Sunday service.

The building is located on on 6th Street and Throckmorton.

The location of the church is more than 100 years old, however. Sunday services have been held at the site since 1873.

The church built in 1873 was called ‘Old Rock Church,’ and was the location at which “a convention of the Christian Churches of Texas bought AddRan College and re-named it Texas Christian University,” according to a press release.

Then, in 1914, the ‘Old Rock Church’ was torn down, as it became too small for the congregations. The church that stands there today was then built in its place.
