Knightstown United Methodist Church

The Christmas Contata Choir of the Knightstown United Methodist Church will present, “Behold the Star!” created by Lloyd Larson at the 9:30 a.m. worship service on Sunday, Dec. 23. Shannon Dawson will present the narration of the very meaningful Contata which is a Christmas journey to the light of Christ. Organist Kathryn Waits will accompany the 22 member choir under the direction of Janet Davidson. The 30 minute presentation is open to the public.

First Baptist Church

On Christmas Eve at 6 p.m., we will have a communion service with music and a brief message from the Scripture. We would love to have you join us!

Also, we have begun using a new Sunday School curriculum entitle, “ABC.”  This three-year program covers the entire Bible in chronological order. It provides answers to the issues that confront today’s culture through the media, school, friends, etc. ABC provides a thorough understanding of the authority and primary teachings of Scripture. All ages will be equipped to defend the Bible, and become conformed to the image of Christ, as they apply God’s Word in their everyday lives. Age-appropriate Sunday school classes meet following the morning worship service.  

If you have any questions, feel free to contact the church office, Monday through Thursday, 8-11 a.m. Have a blessed Christmas!
