Baptist Church Orlando FL, For well over a decade First Baptist Oviedo has been involved
in reaching out to our community through dramatic presentations. It began with Judgment House
giving a message of hope in the face of tragedy. Because of prayers, hard work and the dedication
of our members, thousands of people made decisions, many surrendering their life to Christ. This
began an exciting journey for our church.
Well, now our church is embarking on another dream that will give us the opportunity to
reach out to families in our community and beyond.
This year, I'm pleased to announce our new endeavor, Christmas Village. This is a grass
roots effort that started at the beginning of this year and we believe it has the potential
of exceeding the expectations of anything we’ve ever done.
Christmas Village is the largest evangelistic effort ever undertaken in our churches history,
a venture made up of two enormous venues that will not only reach out to a mature audience
but to the entire family.
This coming December our church campus will become a winter wonderland with synchronized
lights on every building, music, drama, food, games and much more. Each evening our guests
will have the opportunity to experience an adventurous walk-through drama called “Full
Blown” which takes place during a terrible blizzard. It's a production where audience
members are plunged into chilly arctic weather while following a story line with an unpredictable
As the dramatic story draws to a close, the Gospel message will be shared. Upon exiting
the presentation, our guests immediately enter into another exciting aspect of Christmas
Village, our Village Square. This will be a village made up of cottages and booths where
guests can do a variety of things such as play booth-type games, try different foods,
watch puppet shows and listen to live entertainment provided by our very own choir, orchestra
and band members.
We knew that Christmas Village was a gift from God when three separate people came up
with the same idea at the same time unbeknownst to each other. Even down to the very name
Christmas Village. What are the chances of that happening without Divine Intervention…a
direct prompting from God?
The basic foundation has been laid. We have a strong story, designs and ideas, state of
the art technologies and we have been blessed to acquire a number of resources to help get
us started. Now, we're ready to build a village for the Kingdom of God.
Christmas Village is the place where Christians can celebrate being part of the greatest family
on earth and in Heaven and where non-church members can be loved on by people who care
about them deeply. It is a community of believers coming together to share the Gospel, the Good
News, the story of Christmas, the Cross & God's love for all
people. Baptist Church Orlando FL
