First Baptist Family, 


We will be back in person for our annual Christmas Eve Candlelight and Communion service this year at 5:00p.m. This service will be in our church sanctuary with masks required. 


Pre-pandemic, we had a brunch on Christmas day. However, this year, we will not have our Christmas day brunch, but hope to have something next year when Christmas will also be on a Sunday. 


On Sunday, December 26th, our Service of Lessons and Carols will be virtual only, and we will have no discipleship groups that day. We decided to pre-record this service and air it virtually because it is so close to our Christmas Eve service and most of our staff will be out of town taking vacation leave on that Sunday. 


Also, between official holiday schedule and church staff being on vacation, our church offices will be closed December 24th through January 3rd (2022). For pastoral emergencies, please contact a deacon, or you can reach one of our staff by contacting them directly on their cell-phones or e-mail. 


If you would like to drop off a donation at the church office, please leave it in the folder outside of the office suites on the second floor. Our church treasurer will be checking this folder through the end of the year. 


Finally, we will be back to in-person worship on Sunday, January 2nd, the first Sunday of 2022, and back into the church offices on Tuesday, January 4th.


Merry Christmas!
