VALLEY FORGE, PA (ABNS 12/20/21)—The ABCUSA Office of the General Secretary is pleased to share a video of A Christmas Concert from American Baptist Churches USA with you. During Advent, we celebrate the fact that Christ comes to us in new and dramatic ways. As Mary and Joseph and the shepherds gathered around a manger on that first Christmas night, they experienced the wonderful presence of God in their midst.
Christ’s overwhelming and life-changing presence has continued for over 2,000 years. This Advent season we are blessed to share this piece of Advent and Christmas with our ABC family as a cluster of our American Baptist congregations share their Good News, manifested in the coming of Christ.
We are indebted tonight to our producers of this event, Rev. Dr. Tom Wiles and Francisco Litardo. We invite you to view the video below, and to share with others as we recognize the rich and diverse ways in which our American Baptist churches across the country celebrate the Christmas season.
We also invite you to view a Christmas reflection video by Interim General Secretary Dr. C. Jeff Woods, along with video reflections for each week of Advent, on our 2021 Advent Reflection page.
American Baptist Churches USA is one of the most diverse Christian denominations today, with approximately 5,000 congregations comprised of 1.3 million members, across the United States and Puerto Rico, all engaged in God’s mission around the world.
