Lifting Up the Truth of God's Kingdom


Advent Worship 

Our Advent Theme this year, ‘He came near,’ is based on James 5:8 as by its direction we will be watching the Advent wreath burn brighter each week in anticipation of Jesus’ drawing near to us across these weeks and into the new year!  
Join us for worship at 9:00 am in the Sanctuary for these Advent worship times:
November 29: Hanging of the Green Service led by our First Baptist Youth as we focus on living “Near to Hope”
December 6: Procession of International Flags as we begin our week of prayer for International Missions with a focus on “Near to Peace”
December 13: Advent Worship focusing on “Near to Help”
December 20: Advent Worship focusing on “Near to Grace”
December 27: Student Day at Christmas with leadership by college and graduate students
