Wow! It seems to have gone as quickly as it came. Thanksgiving has passed and Christmas is coming. Isn’t it amazing how quickly time passes. We need to think about that. There are some profound truths we can gain from that simple statement!
Sunday we will begin our Christmas theme “Jesus Is Born” and my text for the Christmas season will be Luke 2:1-7. This Sunday I will emphasize Mary, the mother of Jesus, and her willingness to believe the angel Gabriel as he promises her a miraculous conception and birth: “Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus.” Luke 1:30-31 NKJV
I issued a challenge to our congregation that during the Thanksgiving season we bless someone with an act of kindness. I would like to continue this challenge for the Christmas season. Pray and ask the Lord to lay upon your heart an act of kindness that you can do for someone. Our Heavenly Father gave to us his son at Christmas, now we share that spirit of giving with someone else as we give to them our act of kindness. God bless you as you share the love of God! 🙂❤️
I would like to remind everyone that we will be dedicating our new all purpose addition to our church on Sunday, December 18. Our special musical guest for the Christmas concert will be Philips and Banks. Service will begin at 10:00 AM.
God bless you, I look forward to seeing you this Sunday, 10:00 AM.
