  • The sounds of Christmas --- they are all about us.  There are two from the first Christmas that cause us sadness --- the sound of the soldier’s sword as they go from house to house killing innocent babies and then there is the heart wrenching cry of the babies who are being killed.  This is right in the middle of the Christmas story.  What could these say to us?

  • In 1865, Phillip Brooks penned the traditional Christmas Carol, “O Little Town of Bethlehem.” Brooks wrote the carol for the purpose of helping children in Sunday School understand the significance and importance of the birth place of Jesus Christ. He based the hymn on his own personal experience that occurred two years prior when he rode on horse back from Jerusalem to Bethlehem to aid in a Christmas Eve service.

    Christmas in the County

  • For some people Christmas is not a welcomed  time and not one for celebration.  Crimes, murders and violence rise during Christmas.  Suicides increase and psychiatric treatments go up.  Fear, fright, depression, hopelessness and despair is the Christmas spirit for many and they don’t want it.

  • I love how our community is continuing the collection of toys that has gone on for so long through the Santa Bus with the newly named “Christmas Blessings” program through Ovesen Heights Baptist Church’s leadership and coordination. In such seasons as Christmas we remember how blessed we are by God, He has protected us and provided for us in so many amazing ways. What a great season we have to shower His love and joy to others. Here are 5 reminders of the blessings of Christ this Christmas!
