We are mourning the loss of Barbara Stevens, she was a very active member of the church. And the Nurture and or Outreach Committees have been busy nurturing and reaching out to families that are grieving a loss. There has been several families that have been served by them this year.
Our Candlelight Service was excellent with the children reading the Scriptures telling the Story of Jesus' birth and the singing was outstanding as well! We had quite a number of guests this year even though several other churches in town also had a Candlelight Service. Thank you to all that came and Worshipped with us! We enjoyed fellowship and refreshments after the service was over, it was great! I will try to write more later, but for now, Thank you for reading. May God Bless you with a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
As we begin a New Year it should remind us that God gives us the opportunity to start new and fresh in our relationship with Him and with each other! He wipes our slate clean and we get to start over and prayerfully do better in serving Him as well as each other. When any part of the body of Christ suffers then the whole body suffers and we need to minister to that part of the body for healing. What that tells us is that if you or I are hurting in anyway then we should pray and minister to relieve that hurt. When we look around us, we see so many people hurting, and suffering. Offer a kind word, pray for them, and Love them like Jesus Loves You!
