Let there be light(s) – 100,000!

BEAUMONT — First Baptist Church Beaumont — During another year when many events have been delayed or canceled, Beaumont’s First Baptist Church is hosting a Christmas drive-through light park with 100,000 lights.

A Gift of Hope tells the meaning behind the Christmas story during another year where normalcy has been difficult to find. In a world of uncertainty, many are searching for answers, and even more so, for hope. As people of faith, we are honored to offer The Gift of Hope. This year, the festival of lights has five times as many lights as last year’s show, synchronized to Christmas music. The event will be held on the church property near the intersection of Major Drive and Folsom Road and is open to the public starting Dec. 2.

The show will go on each evening from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. Dec. 2-5 and Dec. 9-26. This year, when visitors scan the QR code on the program cards, they can enter a drawing to win a 55” TV or iPad.

The light park is open to all ages and attendance is free. Visitors will drive through a series of five scenes, starting with the creation story in Genesis to the birth of Jesus and ending with the light that darkness does not overcome. During the five-minute drive, visitors can tune a radio station signal to hear holiday music or visit http://www.agiftofhope.net on their smartphone to listen to an audio narrative explaining each scene.

Beaumont’s First Baptist Church is located at 3739 North Major Drive in Beaumont. For more information, call (409) 833-1426 or visit http://www.fbcbeaumont.org or http://www.agiftofhope.net.

Beaumont’s First Baptist Church exists to rescue people by sharing with them the gracious love of God, and then encouraging them to become rescuers themselves.
