Everyone in the community is invited to attend First Baptist Church for a four-week series based on the Advent themes of Hope, Love, Joy, and Peace called “The Gifts of Christmas,” at 10 a.m. on Sunday mornings and at 4 p.m. on Christmas Eve.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year, or so the old song goes. Yet it doesn’t always feel that way – the hectic holiday schedule, family pressures, and emotional wounds are just a few reasons. But First Baptist sees the Christmas season as one that offers a unique opportunity to experience God’s love and grace in the midst of real life. That is the reason for “The Gifts of Christmas” Advent Series celebration – to experience what the true gifts of Christmas mean for our lives today.
“Some people spend their entire life and fortune searching for the gifts that God freely gives us in his Son. This season helps us to focus on the most important gifts of all” said Pastor Kevin Cunningham.
In a season often marked by frenzied busyness, Advent is an opportunity to set aside time to prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ. The relevant messages in this series are designed to help us place our focus on a far greater story than our own – the story of God’s redeeming love for our world.
With cookies and cocoa, lighting of the Advent wreath, and a free devotional book for visitors, “The Gifts of Christmas,” this series is an opportunity for families throughout the community to come together to celebrate this special season.
First Baptist Church is an American Baptist Church and is located at 155 Concord Road in Bedford.
