Celebration of Service Sunday
Sunday, May 5, 2019
Showing our gratitude for those who serve, and commissioning our new church leadership
Christ is risen! He is risen, indeed!
Celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ at the First Baptist Church in Sylva on Easter Sunday morning, April 21st at 10:30 AM. An Easter Egg Hunt for children will take place on our playground immediately following our service. Join us for worship on Easter Sunday morning at 10:30 AM as we rejoice in the Good News of the resurrection.
As a tradition, on Easter Sunday, we decorate the cross on our front porch steps with beautiful flowers brought in by our congregation. If you would like to bring flowers to decorate with, please bring them to the foyer of the church before Sunday School, or bring them on Good Friday and leave them in water.
Ladies of the church,
Please join us Sunday, March 31 at 2:00 PM as we will have a church service for the residents at Skyland Care Center. Your presence is very important as we visit and worship with them.
Begin your family’s Christmas celebration with the story of Christ’s birth! Join us on December 24th for our Christmas Eve Candlelight Service. Come early at 5:00 PM to light a candle in memory of a loved one and to hear Christmas music before the service. Then, beginning at 5:30 PM, our family-friendly service will capture the wonder of Christmas with familiar carols, the retelling of the Christmas story and the glow of candlelight. Afterwards, gather your family together in front of our beautifully decorated Christmas tree for that classic holiday photo. Don’t miss this opportunity to create lifelong memories with your entire family!
Due to the snowstorm this previous weekend, our Adult Choir Christmas Program is rescheduled to occur in this Sunday's 10:30 AM worship service. We hope you can join us!
