The Friends in Christ Sunday School Class invites you to this year's Christmas Eve Services. There will be two services, one at 3:00pm and one at 5:00pm. Both will be held in the Sanctuary. The Friends Class has been hosting these services for many years and are excited to announce that this year's speaker will be Ken Powell.
Ken is our Friends Class Sunday School teacher and does a wonderful job of sharing God's word with us each Sunday. He is a lifelong member of Fairmount and has been a teacher in our children's and teen's ministries, a deacon, and is currently serving as one of our elders. Ken is employed as a salesman for John Deere and resides with his wife Marianne, and sons, Jacob and Colton, on the outskirts of downtown Old Church. He is passionate in his love for Christ and many have been blessed by that fact.
Ken's message on Christmas Eve will help each of us consider the Christmas experience today and how it impacted those involved with this event 2,000 years ago. Prophesies of the coming of Christ date all the way back to the Garden of Eden. God said, "And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel." A day was coming when a woman would bear a Child that would battle evil and defeat sin, once and for all. On Christmas day, that Child was born.
The Christmas season is a wonderful time to reflect on the fact that God left His throne in heaven, and came down to His creation, ultimately to die for our sins, and to take the punishment that we deserve. We celebrate the birth of Christ and praise Him for what He does for us. He offers us the gift of life eternal when we make Him our Lord and Savior. We hope that you plan to attend one of the Christmas Eve services and expect that you will be blessed by worshipping and praising the newborn King, Jesus Christ.
