Join us as our Minister of Music, Joel Raney, ushers in the Christmas holiday with a variety of anthems, hymns, and bell choir numbers. This year the Growth Team has designated this event to be “Invite a Friend Sunday.” Our Sanctuary Choir will be presenting special Christmas music. They will be joined by several children from our Preschool & Kindergarten. This is the perfect opportunity to extend an invitation to your family and friends to come to First Baptist to experience a worship service.
