ADVENT 2019 AT LYNCHBURG’S FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH
Lots of GREAT events are happening this season at Lynchburg’s historic First Baptist Church! You’ll want to experience every single one:
On Saturday, December 14 @ 9:45 am—First Baptist will be one of eight historic churches participating in the annual “Historic Church Open House” sponsored by Interfaith Outreach Association. Tours of the 19th Century High Victorian Gothic church building will be available starting at 9:45. In addition, there will be a 15 minute mini-concert featuring pianist/vocalist Caleb Hunter and cellist Anna Hutcherson beginning at 10:00 am. Admission to the tour and to the concert are FREE, though donations to the work of Interfaith Outreach will be gratefully accepted.
On Sunday, December 15 @ 11:00 am—The First Baptist Chancel Choir will present the program Christmas Carols from All Over during the morning worship service. This program will feature carols from places as diverse as Argentina, Russia and Canada interspersed with readings from Scotland’s Iona Community. Following the service, a reception will be held in the Fellowship Hall. What a great way to “help make the season bright!”
On Tuesday, December 24 @ 5:00 pm—The First Baptist Church will gather for the annual Christmas Eve Candlelight Communion Service. It is the highlight of the season—singing favorite Christmas carols in the candlelit beauty of the First Baptist Church sanctuary. There is nothing quite like it! This is YOUR invitation to join us for this special time of remembering and celebration.
