Our celebration of Christmas will include a Christmas Breakfast on Sunday, December 21 at 10:00 am following worship, and a 5:00 pm Christmas Eve Candlelight Service in our sanctuary on December 24. Christmas is a prime time for us to invite guests to share our celebration of Jesus’ birth. People may join you in worship at Christmas who might not come any other time of the year. Who in particular can you invite and bring next Sunday or Christmas Eve? Be praying for those people now and put out an invitation in faith. Offer to bring them with you, so they won’t feel awkward. Let’s reach out in love to the people around us. Wouldn’t it be great if some people received three or four invitations from people here!
Women’s Bible Study Fellowship comes to our church on Tuesday, January 13, 10:00 to noon. BSF is an in-depth, interdenominational Bible study that helps people know God and equips them to effectively serve the Church. For more information or to enroll (required), call Carol Hornall, group leader, at 674-6863. This class (through May) examines the life of Moses. This winter you can begin to understand God’s Word like never before.
As our shoebox gifts head overseas, please be praying for the hundreds of children who will individually receive a gift. Pray that the children will know that the gift is ultimately from God, the God who loves them. Pray for those precious children and their families that they would be able to rejoice in God.
Please remember your church in your year-end giving! Our needs are many, even though we don’t hound you with requests.
