First Baptist Church of Waskom with Pastor Ivy Shelton, Music Minister Barry LeBlanc and the FBC Choir began the Christmas countdown, ushering in the season and reminding everyone that Christ is the reason to celebrate.
Jacob and Aimee Speight, Youth Pastors, along with the unstoppable Rose McLane, participated in producing a sterling Christmas musical, with live stage performances by the children recreating the birth of Jesus. A beautiful nativity scene was enhanced with video, music and light effects, recalling the birth of Christ in Bethlehem, complete with a visit by the three wise men, who came to adore the newly born baby Jesus. Heartfelt performances brought smiles to the audience, infusing the atmosphere with the true spirit of Christmas, as seen through the eyes of a child.
The music at the First Baptist Church of Waskom is always a worship wonder. This night was no exception, with the spirit filled musical selections, incredibly talented choir and musicians, with stunning solo performances by Julie Barnes and Barry LeBlanc that entertained and blessed all in attendance. The vocal range of solo performers was matched only by their spirit-filled, heartfelt delivery.
The cold winter evening did not keep the congregation and visitors from filling the facility to the brim. Pastor Ivy Shelton reminded everyone that there are no strangers at special events or weekly services, as he welcomed visitors to return.
