Christmas Eve Service at First Baptist

The First Baptist Church of Bennington, Vermont, will hold its Christmas Eve service on Wednesday, December 24, 2013 at 7 PM.  The service will feature familiar Christmas carols and scripture readings accompanying the church’s gradual lighting of the Advent candles and preparation to light the Christ candle at the service’s culmination.  The church’s interim minister, the Rev. Thomas Hiltsley will preside over the service.   Accompanying the service music will be Mo Rancourt, guest trumpeter, and Charles Olegar, the church’s organist and director of music.   



Each November,  First Baptist supports congregational  families in need through our Thanksgiving Basket ministry.  To request a basket, please speak with a Church Life Board member. Requests will be kept confidential.  Please advise of dietary needs or allergies when making a request.  The Church Life Board invites members to donate canned goods and other nonperishable items (food, toiletries, basic household supplies). Cash donations to help with perishable items for the baskets are gratefully appreciated.  For more information contact Lisa Flynn.

 Goods and cash donations are requested to be given to First Baptist by November 17, 2013.   Thank you for your support of our church family!
