The 37th Living Christmas Tree (LCT) is quickly approaching. If you are unfamiliar with this annual event, here are a few details: LCT is presented as a gift to the community from First Baptist Church by a 100 voice choir, full orchestra and drama cast. The 39 foot metal constructed tree is covered with 100,000 computer controlled lights moving in synchronization to music. It is a unique sight to behold. Each year offers a new presentation, but the message is always the same. The purpose and heartbeat of this event is to share the gospel message of Christ and His love.

Ephesians 2:8-9 states, “For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift – not from works, so that no one can boast.” (HSCB) As God the Father extends His grace through the Son, to those who believe, so we desire to extend this “free gift” to our community. If you desire to be involved in this ministry, here is a way to be involved.

Monday, September 25th from 6:00-8:30 p.m., the Living Christmas Tree Preview Party commences with an evening of fellowship and vision casting for this year’s theme. All singers, instrumentalists, stage, tech, greeters and support teams are welcome to attend. The church will provide the main entrée of beef brisket, bread and drinks. We do ask attendees to bring a side dish, vegetable, salad or dessert. After dinner, we will distribute books, rehearsal CD’s and listen to the music. Childcare is available by reservation. Please call Penny at the church office to R.S.V.P. The children are welcome to eat with us at the Preview Party and then dismiss to the childcare area.
