Christmas Programs Scheduled At Calvary Baptist in Fairfield

Calvary Baptist Church of Fairfield will be presenting three different Christmas programs during the next two weeks as the Christmas holiday season quickly approaches.

The first program will feature the church’s sixteen member hand bell choir which will be performing this coming Sunday, December 4th, during the regular morning worship service at 10:45 am. Four arrangements will be presented by the youth and adult members, which include “All I Want For Christmas Is You”, “On A Still Silent Night”, “Infant Holy, Infant Lowly” and “Now the Green Blade Riseth.”

Calvary’s children’s choir will be performing the Christmas musical “Great Big Story” at 6:30 pm on Sunday evening, December 4th. The thirty-five member choir of kindergarten through sixth grade students will be performing numerous songs and others will be acting in several Christmas scenes.

On Sunday, December 18th, Calvary’s adult choir will be performing the Christmas cantata “A Family Christmas.” The program will feature the adult choir, an ensemble group and Calvary’s children’s choir. Several solos will be included during the program. The final song of the cantata will be a candlelight service to end the evening of worship and song.

“We are so proud of those who participate in our choirs at Calvary and are honored to present these programs not only to our congregation but to the community as well,” stated church pastor Terry Skinner. “Each program will be a blessing to all who come as we worship and celebrate the birth of our Savior. Bring your families and friends,” he added.

All programs will be under the direction of Calvary’s music and education minister Shelby Race and assisted by youth minister Devin DiGuilio. Calvary is located at 220 E. Main in Fairfield.

Teague Christmas Angel Program

Dear Friends,

It’s that time of year to kick-off our Teague Christmas Angel Program. Our goal is to help provide children 0-12 years of age with Christmas this year. At this time you can help the less fortunate of Teague have a Merry Christmas by being a part of this special program. Last year was a great success. Thanks to everyone’s generosity we were able to help 78 children with gifts. We are hoping to be able to help even more this year.

You can come by our office starting November 18, 2016 to adopt an angel off the tree, or you can donate unwrapped gifts. We are also happy to accept monetary donations to purchase gifts for the angels that are not picked. We are asking all donations to be delivered to us by December 16th in order to get everything ready in time for pick-up.

Every family will have to complete an application to be eligible for help. This program is to help only our local children within Teague for Christmas.

Thank you in advance for your generosity. Have a very Merry Christmas.

Stephanie Burns

*Please make all checks out to Teague Angel Tree. Thank you again.
