First Baptist Church at 88 South St. will host a fundraising Christmas concert titled "The Light of Christmas" at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13.

The concert’s free will offering will benefit the Pittsfield Area Council of Congregations (PACC) Emergency Fuel Fund.

The program will blend fresh, original songs, familiar carols, popular Christmas standards in a variety of musical styles. The concert will feature a 27 member choir and 11 piece orchestra for this special event.

The PACC Emergency Fund, working in collaboration with the Salvation Army, provides families with a one-time 100-gallon supply of fuel oil.

Those who are unable to attend but would like to contribute to the PACC Emergency Fund may mail donations to First Baptist Church, 88 South St., Pittsfield, MA 01201.

Make checks payable to First Baptist Church and mark "Light of Christmas" in the memo field so the donation can be properly allocated to PACC Emergency Fuel Fund.
