A traditional Irish Christmas blessing says: “May you be as contented as Christmas finds you all the year round.” For those not content in the LORD, maybe we should modify the blessing to say: “May you grow in the contentment of the LORD, now and always!” That is certainly our prayer for you this holiday season.
We hope that this Christmas our church and community will experience the season of joy as never before.
Many have made this ministry project a blessing. Our heartfelt appreciation goes to the following people:
…each of the choir members and musicians for their dedication and hard work in preparing this presentation.
…each member of the narrative cast for their meaningful
…Tom Gardner and James Hutchins for sound, lighting, and
…to the people of First Baptist Church of Covington for
supporting the proclamation of God’s Word in Song, Music,
and the ministry of praise.
…to our Lord, Jesus Christ, the author of our faith and the
giver of joy in all seasons of life…
