Guest Preacher Rev. Dr. Greg DeLoach will preach a sermon entitled, “Surviving Christmas”

We welcome Dr. Greg DeLoach to our “pulpit,” as he brings a message virtually from Atlanta. Dr. DeLoach is a native of Eatonton, Georgia. He has pastored congregations throughout the state for nearly three decades, including in Mansfield, Chickamauga, Marietta, and Augusta.

Following 10 years as senior pastor of First Baptist Augusta, he became executive director of Developmental Disabilities Ministries, an Atlanta-based nonprofit, charitable corporation serving adults with developmental disabilities and their families through operation of 19 homes across Georgia.

In February 2017, he joined the development staff at Mercer, having previously served on the University’s Board of Trustees. Dr. DeLoach became interim dean of the James and Carolyn McAfee School of Theology on Aug. 1, 2018.

In addition to his responsibilities at Mercer, he serves as teaching pastor at First Baptist Monroe. He and his wife, Amy, have two adult sons, Clark and Aaron.

The night before Christmas offers an opportunity to worship the newborn king. In this service, we commemorate Jesus Christ’s birth. The service is a Candlelight Service in which Christmas is celebrated with beautiful music and a meditation on the meaning of Christmas. We light the Christ candle in the Advent wreath and share the light throughout the congregation.

Though virtual this year, we hope that these holy moments bring your family close to your Christian family here at FBC Martinsville in special ways. Watch from home on your computer, tablet, smartphone – or even hook to your TV to watch with the whole family. This service is family-friendly, with children’s time, beautiful music, and a reading of the Christmas story.

Our story begins with the magic of Christmas through a Child’s perspective.  Music, dance and fun! You will see Sugarplum fairies, Toy Soldiers, and a festive group of Jingle Ringers.

The story continues with the birth of Jesus, following the scriptures from the Chapters of Luke and Matthew in the New Testament. You will hear traditional carols and a beautiful solo by one of our students in our First Music Academy.

Please join us on Wednesday night as we celebrate the birth of Jesus!

This is not always “the most wonderful time of the year” for everyone. Especially this year, we are mindful of things we are all missing—family gatherings, celebrations, worship services together. Join us for our Longest Night service on Monday, December 21st at 6:00 pm. During this service you will be invited to name and light a votive candle for a loss or disappointment you are experiencing. Even if you are unable to attend this service of lament, we invite you to find a time during this season to name the things that are most difficult this season. Light a candle at home while you watch, and know that though it is dark, the Light of the world is coming.
