Light of the World!

Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, "I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life" (John 8:12 NKJV).

This time of year, there is so much that draws our attention. Parties and packages... tinsel and trees... shopping and singing... family and food.... If we let it, the Christmas holiday can become burdensome. But there is a solution... there is a way to avoid Christmas becoming stressful rather than "bless"full, and it's simple - don't let anything other than the Christ of Christmas occupy first place! With all the busyness of the season, it can be difficult to keep Him central, but if you do, your Christmas will be a more joyful occasion, and the stress of the holiday will be minimized! 

At Friendship Bible Church we offer several different opportunities this Christmas season... opportunities for you to immerse yourself in the Christ of Christmas:

Saturday at 6:30 PM - "Light of the World" - our Christmas musical featuring the FBC choir, and various other individuals and groups. Beautiful music about our beautiful Savior! For your planning, this service will last just about an hour.

Sunday at 10:30 AM - "Light of the World" - second performance of the Christmas program. There will be no Sunday School this Lord's Day, so just come a little before 10:30 to get your seat. And again, for planning purposes, the service should be just about an hour in length.

Monday at 6:30 PM - Christmas Eve candlelight service, featuring the carols of Christmas, a brief message from God's Word, and concluding with the traditional "Silent Night" by candlelight.

It's going to be a great Christmas celebration at FBC, and I encourage you to pick one or more of these opportunities, and attend, for it will help you to avoid that Christmas burnout... and to keep Christ the center of your Christmas this year.

Oh... and bring somebody with you... maybe somebody who doesn't yet know the Christ of Christmas. What better gift could you give them than the gift of the Savior?
