I couldn’t believe my eyes as I turned the calendar ahead to check out some dates in November… there it was, on the date of November 29, in bold black print: BLACK FRIDAY. It is official now, the number one shopping day of the year has made it officially onto calendars. Right along with Easter, Thanksgiving, Hanukah, Christmas and all the other national holidays.
Every year we say we are losing sight of the real meaning of Christmas. I hope that you find during this month at First Baptist, that it is not just another event we have to do. I hope you find that by our worship together, our celebrations together and our service together, that this is one place that will help you remember the reason for the season.
“Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy
That will be for all the people. Today in the city of David
A savior has been born to you, he is Christ the Lord.”
That is the reason for the season as they say! On behalf of all the all the staff here at First Baptist we wish you a very blessed Christmas and start of the New Year.
