International Christmas Celebration
Christmas from Around the World
Saturday, December 2, 2017
International Ministries Center
(605 Texas Place)
Christmas is almost upon us. We look forward to celebrating our Lord’s birth with people from many nations at the International Ministries Center on December 2, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. for the International Christmas Celebration. I would like to invite you and your church family to be a part of the celebration this year.
The theme this year is Christmas from Around the World. The evening will begin with fellowship around the table with various International foods. There will be drama and Christmas Carols by the language churches. Rev. Loren Robinson, Director of Missions for the Clarke Baptist Association, will be the speaker. Gifts will be given to seafarers and children from the international community.
We have asked the language churches and language school students to provide most of the food this year. The Mobile Baptist WMU will be coordinating the dinner and serving those attending. If you would like to make a donation to help support this celebration, please make checks out to International Ministries and send to the Mobile Baptist Associational office by November 16, 2017. Please designate your donation for the International Christmas Celebration.
Again this year, we would like to present each seafarer with a wallet including a $10 Walmart gift card inside. Other items, as seen on the enclosed list, are also being collected.
It is my prayer that through this celebration we will be able to impact those in attendance with the love of Christ. Thank you for all of your support for this great ministry. I am honored with the opportunity to serve as International Ministries Director.
