The Picture Rocks Baptist Church invites everyone to “Grow into Christmas”. Pastor Ron Turner explains that “the Spirit of Christmas in your heart and understanding isn’t triggered by the first snowfall, or brilliant light displays, or even the pleasant flow of colorful cards. It happens gradually as we seek to grow in our grasp of the real meaning of December 25th.” The steps of “Christmas Growth” offered this year by the church begins with the lighting of the Advent Candles during 9:30 A.M. worship services.
“Singing about the events of Christmas is truly a growth step in our understanding and enjoyment of Christmas,” according to the Pastor. On December 17th the public is invited to join in a stroll through Picture Rocks singing Christmas Carols. Caroling is at 6:00 p.m. with hot chocolate and refreshments following.
Then, on December18th, the church will have a Christmas Card Exchange. Cards to people in the church fellowship are placed (saving postage) in a box and distributed during a social hour following worship.
“The Candle Light Christmas Eve Service culminates our growth in the meaning of the birth of Christ,” according to Pastor Ron. It is at 7.P.M. December 24th. The community is invited. December 25th Christmas Day Worship Service is 9:30 A.M.
