The lowly Shepherd appears at FBC.

The 3rd Sunday of Advent at FBC was very remarkable.  The Children’s choir presented the congregants with their Advent music.  The Downtown Youth Choir did the same.  The Youth Handbell Choir was impeccable with their delivery of Advent music.  The Sanctuary was adorned with decorations.  Poinsettias highlighted the decorations.  The Chrismon tree was in all of its glory.

Then it happened…..the lowly Shepherd appeared on Sunday morning.  See the recap below.

FBC can’t wait.  This Sunday is the Nine Lessons & Carols.  FBC is hoping to see you there!  11:00 a.m. for morning worship.

Beauty of the Advent Season, Visual review

The Sanctuary Committee has been busy decorating the church for the Advent season.  The annual Chrismon tree is in place, candles are in the windows, and wreaths and garland have all been hung inside and out.  The Nativity creche is located in our narthex.  Thanks to the committee for all they do in preparing the church house for the season.

These decorations in the Sanctuary are simply wonderful!  On this Sunday of Advent, FBC captures some of the Visual aspects of the season as well as the Worship Service.
