As we look toward Christmas and the end of the year, there are a few things I want to make sure that everyone knows about.
I always look forward to our annual Church Christmas Party. The food is great, the games are fun, and I enjoy our simple evening together. We would love for you to join us this Friday at 6:30. If you are able to attend, please bring a finger food and a dessert. There is an optional gift exchange with a $10 limit.
Gifts for Jesus Offering
Every year through the month of December we collect a special offering. In past years this offering has gone to support efforts like an Orphanage in Mexico, families with large medical bills, purchasing Bibles for a church plant, and rice for a mission in Haiti. You can give to this special offering during any of our services by using a “Gifts for Jesus Offering” envelope or by placing your gift in the collection box placed at the rear of the church.
You do not want to miss our services on December 23! At the 10:30 service we will have music from Toddler Church, Children’s Church, and a couple of our talented adults too. We will even have a Christmas video starring our Children’s Church kids!
The 6:00 PM service will be a candle-light service with carols & scripture. These candle-light services are truly special and this one will set the tone for your Christmas week.
2013 is just around the corner, and we will be starting if off in a special way. For the four Sundays in January our series will be:
Soul Detox – Clean Living in a Contaminated World
You and I are surrounded by “stuff” that is toxic to our spiritual health, so we will be talking about getting it out of our system and keeping it out. I want to drive this study home, so in addition to covering it in our Sunday morning services we will also host discussion groups & offer corresponding Bible Study plans.
Plan to jump into this study with both feet in January!
