You are invited to join us for a special Christmas advent series, Christmas Playlist and with us experience the greatness of God.
Our advent worship services are at 9:30 am Sunday mornings starting on November 27 for the four weeks leading up to Christmas.
You will understand why people have always written songs about Christmas and wanted to sing them.
– Sinclair Ferguson, Professor, Pastor and Author
We invite you and your family & friends to join us this year for an opportunity to set aside time each week to celebrate the coming of Christ – the most important event in world history. Our worship services will help us place our focus on a far greater story than our own—the story of God’s redeeming love for our world and the greatest promise ever made.
Through four unique songs in the Bible’s Advent (coming) of Christ account, you will see the greatness of our God and His incredible love for our world – including you!
Track 1 Mary’s Song: What is God Like? – November 27
Track 2 Zechariah’s Song: Why do You Need God? – December 4
Track 3 The Angels’ Song: How did God Come? – December 11
Track 4 Simeon’s Song: How did God do it? – December 18
Music has always been a huge part of Christmas. It seems like the radio stations and stores just can’t wait to get you in the Christmas spirit. At First Baptist, you can sing your favorite Christmas carols, hear beautiful special music from our church family, and anticipate the weekly lighting of the Advent wreath as we countdown to Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Your family will want to stay for delicious cookies, coffee, and cocoa after each service too!

Explore the very first songs that celebrate the coming of the Savior. In Christmas Playlist: Four Songs that Bring You to the Heart of Christmas, Alistair Begg looks at the songs sung before, during, and after the birth of the baby who lies at the heart of the real Christmas. Unpacking the words of Mary, Zechariah, the Angels, and Simeon, Alistair reveals the beauty and joy in these lyrics recorded in the Gospel of Luke. Christmas Playlist is perfect for preparing the heart for the miracle of Christmas and for sharing the story of God’s love with a friend.
The four weeks leading up to Christmas have been celebrated throughout the church age as the “Advent” or coming. Each Sunday we will light one of the four candles on the Advent wreath and share God’s message of hope, peace, joy and love through His Word, the Bible. The Old Testament tells of the coming Messiah – the one who would save the world. The New Testament shares the Good News – the Gospel of the arrival of Jesus Christ the Son of God, born in Bethlehem so many years ago.
Saturday, December 24 Candlelit Christmas Eve Service at 6:00 pm
On Christmas Eve we celebrate that Jesus came as the Messiah, the One who would save the people from their sins. Jesus fulfilled all the prophecies spoken of Him through the ages, and in Jesus, we see a beautiful picture of the fullness of God.
Children are always welcome in our services, but there is a nursery for infants through four years old provided for all services and Kid’s Church for kindergarten through fourth grade. Interactive and age-appropriate Sunday School classes (K-12 Grade) and adult Bible classes meet at 11 am each Sunday after our coffee & cookie time.
