Halloween has become a major cultural event in America. "Day of the Dead" is a similarly important event for many Latino's. Both events occur at the end of October and focus on death and the spirit world. As Christians we don't have to worry about any of that. We have the assurance of salvation and our future is secure because of our faith in Jesus Christ. When we die, our spirit will leave our body, not to haunt anyone, but to immediately go to be with Jesus and experience the joy of heaven and a relationship with our Heavenly Father.
Our theme in worship this Sunday is "Light the Night." We'll take the darkness out of Halloween and celebrate the light of Jesus Christ and the hope we have for the future. If you want to know more about our Christian hope of eternal life, join us Sunday at First Baptist at 9:00 a.m. (traditional) or 10:45 a.m. (contemporary).
