A WORD FROM OUR PASTOR
BUDGET VOTE
There will be a business meeting with no discussion to adopt the 2015 budget on Wednesday,
November 12, during prayer meeting at 6:15 p.m. in Coakley Chapel. 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. Washington Lions’ Club Fish Fry
I invite you to plan now to attend this wonder-filled
evening!With “Hope for the Holidays,”
