Copies of the proposed budget are available in the church office, vestibule, and welcome center. Light Up Mt. Washington First Baptist Church is partnering with our city to “Light Up Mt. Washington,” Friday, December 5 from 6-9 p.m. This partnership assists our community to discover the meaning of the Savior’s birth in the midst of holiday celebrations. We are excited to decorate our town with light! As we do this, we remember the following: God commissioned angels to roll back the night and fill it with blazing light! God provided a mighty celestial choir to serenade a few startled shepherds! God graced the heavens with a miracle star! God arranged such a memorable entry point as a feeding trough in a stable! God went to all this trouble to open our eyes to His entry into our world! (Reprinted Come…And Behold Him!) Then let us honor our Savior’s birth by lighting our city. The Light of the World has come! We are reassured of his coming as we read, “In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness…That was the true light which gives light to every man who comes into the world” (John 1:4, 5, 9). We will reflect that light by hosting several activities on this special night as a gift to our community: · A Live Nativity · Three Choirs to Sing on the Front Steps of our Church from First Baptist Church, Mt. Washington Elementary School and Mt. Washington Middle School · Seasonal Refreshments in the Christian Life Center and a visit from Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus with picture-taking available · Our Mayor Lighting the City’s Christmas Lights · Free Carriage Rides · Special Gifts Awarded · Mt.
