    THE BABY BOY By Tammy Scheller

    To have Christmas peace & joy

    We can't forget the Baby Boy.

    From Heaven to earth, the Son of God, He came to walk this earthly sod.

    To live like us from day to day, And by His life

    to show the way...

    To grace, abundance, hope within,

    He came to save us from our sin.

    A home in Heaven, our souls to lift, We'll never get a greater gift.

    So if we want real peace and joy,

    Let's not forget the Baby Boy.

    Submitted by Sis. Andrea P. Dixon

  • Sunday School Holiday

    On Sunday, December 23, 2012, the Sunday School will again hold its Annual Holiday Game. The game, starting at 9:15 a.m., will offer parti- cipants a chance to have fun, win prizes, and hopefully learn and think more about the Bible and the Christmas season.

    Whether you are a current member of the Sunday school, or if you’ve never attended, you are invited to come out and get in the Christmas spirit with our Annual Holiday Game.

    POT-LUCK FELLOWSHIP DINNER

    & CANDLELIGHT SERVICE CANCELLED

    The Pastor's Aid Ministry has announced that it will not be sponsoring the annual Christmas Fellowship Dinner nor Candlelight Service this year. They're cancelled for

    this year.

    POWERFUL THANKSGIVING SERVICE

    If only one word could be used to describe our annual

    Thanksgiving Day Service with Solid Rock

    Community Baptist Church, perhaps that word would

    be "powerful." On Thursday, November 22, 2012, Mt.

    Zion, Solid Rock, and this year, Abundant Life

    Church, joined together to praise God and give thanks

    on Thanksgiving morning.

    The one-hour service was spirit-filled from start to

    finish with praise and worship. All three pastors, Rev.

    White, Bishop Curtis Shaird, Pastor of Solid Rock, and

    Rev. Gwen Haynes, Pastor of Abundant Life, all

    shared a word. Bishop Shaird gave the scriptural text

    and the Solid Rock's Choir provided the music.
