FBC presents ‘Sing we now of Christmas’ Sunday

Although it has been “beginning” to look a lot like Christmas for some time now, First Baptist Church of Troy will bring the real reason for the Christmas season into focus with “Sing We Now of Christmas” on Sunday.

The music ministry of FBC will present a musical presentation of the living Christmas tree at 10:15 a.m. and 5 p.m. Sunday in the church sanctuary at 215 West College Street. Tickets are free of charge. Reservations are not required and the public is invited.

“To present the message of the Christmas story through the tool of the living Christmas tree is such a privilege,” said  Bart Culpepper, First Baptist Church minister of music. “It is an offering of worship to the God of all creation, the God who loved the world so much that He provided a way for mankind to have a relationship with Himself.”

It has been several years since FBC last presented the living Christmas tree. However, those who have attended the presentations have waited in great anticipation for another opportunity.

“My first experience with the living Christmas tree was several years ago at First Baptist,” said Morgan Drinkard, a member of First Baptist. “I was amazed by the spectacle of lights and music. It is a wonderful program for anyone who enjoys celebrating the season.”

The living  Christmas tree is the only event of its kind in Troy and Pike County. It is an event in which community members join the FBC orchestra and choir.

“The musical selections are a treat and a true reminder of the reason for the season,” Culpepper said.

Everyone is invited to join the ushering in of the Christmas season as FBC presents “Sing We Now of Christmas on Sunday.”
