FBC Christmas Celebration Dec. 1, 7:30 p.m.



The First Baptist Church of Ballston Spa will present their annual program of Christmas music as part of the First Friday Events in the Town of Ballston Spa. Immediately following the Christmas Parade on December 1, around 7:30 PM, the choir, under the direction of Mrs. Darryl Drew, will present the Christmas production of “CHRISTMAS! We Remember, Rejoice, Worship,” created and arranged by Mike Speck and Tim Parton.

In the words of Mr. Speck, “We must pause and remember and tell the biblical account of the birth of Christ, experience the festive spirit of rejoicing expressed though joyous singing, and participate in true worship – a time of heartfelt praise and adoration in exuberant exaltation of the newborn Messiah.”

The program will consist of several choral selections, accompanied by a dramatic screen presentation. The soloists will be: Colleen Pierre with a Children’s Choir, Kim Sprenger, Thomas Hemens, and guest soloist, Jada Chance, fresh from a tour to South Korean with world famous Hezekiah Walker, Grammy Award winning gospel artist and preacher.

There is no greater time of the year to express to our Savior our gratitude for what He has done for us. You are encouraged to bring your Christmas offerings of praise to Him on this very special event in the community of Ballston Spa and First Baptist Church on December 1 at 7:30 PM.

Following the presentation, a delicious dessert buffet will be served. Come celebrate the true meaning of Christmas! Use the fliers available at both sanctuary entrances to invite everyone you know!
