Pastor Frank’s Letter to the FBC Community – December 2020

Dear Members and Friends,

As 2020 goes, November was actually a very busy month at First Baptist Waltham!

There are now two opportunities for online fellowship available:

1) We have been having bi-weekly Zoom meetings on Fridays at 7 pm; the next
one is Dec. 4th, then the 18th, etc. This is a time for discussing issues that concern
the functioning of our church.

2) I have initiated an Advent-focused time of devotion and virtual fellowship on
Zoom for the four weeks in Advent. We had our first one on Sunday,
November 29 th at 11:00am and found it to be a Spirit-filled experience and
intimate time of sharing.

*If you would like to attend either or both of these, please either call or email
Walter Bailey with your email address or other method of communication.
Walter will send the Zoom link to you each week. He can be reached at 781-
839-2341 or

We recognize and regret that not everyone is able to participate due to a lack of
proper equipment and/or resources.

Our annual filling, wrapping, and sending of “shoe boxes” to Samaritan’s Purse for
children in need took place, and, despite Covid, we were able to send off 50
shoeboxes. Christian Ed sent out special Thanksgiving mailings to our church children
with stories, puzzles, and assorted goodies in an effort to let them know that we care
and that they are missed. We hope to have a Christmas mailing as well.

Along with those things and our weekly church postings on the church’s website, is an
attempt to continue nurturing our love and care for one another and our spiritual
needs. Please let us know how and if this has been helpful for you and your family by
sending a brief note the pastor Frank at or a phone call at

In Christ,
Pastor Frank
