First Baptist Church

What a great time of year! It’s nice to see the decorations, to be with family and other special people, and to exchange gifts. These are some of the things that make the Christmas season so meaningful. However, this season may not seem so nice for you. You miss a loved one who is far away or has even passed away. You are stressed trying to keep up with everything, or the bills are high and you cannot invest in the kind of celebration you would like to. If this is you, don’t be discouraged; there is good news! You can have a joy that is more powerful than any of your circumstances, and that can give you a reason to celebrate. Come and join us at First Baptist Church this Sunday at 9:30 a.m. where we will be looking at where the true joy of the season comes from. We hope to see you there!
