This really is one of my favorite weeks of the year. I pray that your Thanksgiving is blessed. Please remember that none of our regular Wednesday night activities are meeting this week. However, the Sanctuary Choir and Orchestra will be rehearsing Tuesday night at 6:00 p.m.
We are returning Sunday to the book of Isaiah. We will remain in this Old Testament prophetic book for the rest of the year. We have observed already that Isiah prophesied in a time of crisis. One struggle that we are likely to face in the midst of our own crises is to continue to be faithful to God. We will consider that Sunday. Be ready to open your Bibles to Isaiah 6:9-13.
Next week, our large Christmas Tree will go into place for this year’s The Singing Christmas Tree. Titled “Receive Our King,” this year’s presentation will use Bible stories from Creation to the Nativity to tell the story of Christmas. I hope you will help us to invite our community for one of these presentations on December 14-17. We need your financial support as well. If you have not already done so, as a member of First Baptist Church, please give a love offering this year specific to The Singing Christmas Tree. Your generous offering allows us as members to make this free to our community.
