image.0023rd SUNDAY OF ADVENT – CANDLE OF JOY!  Advent is a time of anticipation, preparation, and hope.  You are welcome to read Luke 2:8-14 in preparation for lighting the Candle of Joy.  Our prayer is that God’s Spirit speaks His word to your heart, you hear it, and His JOY lifts all your burdens as you trust His word to you this morning…! 

THANKS FOR PARTICIPTING IN THE CHRISTMAS DINNER & CAROLING THIS WEEK! Christmas Dinner/Talent Show was a great time of fun and fellowship for our church family…  Caroling at Sandpiper Bay was a meaningful time of ministry outreach to those in need…  “Behold how good and blessed it is when brothers/sisters dwell (celebrate and serve) together in unity!”

THANKS FOR GIVING TO THE CHRISTMAS BLESSING!  Your generosity allowed us to give $1,480.00 in gifts to families/individuals in our congregation who could use a blessing this Christmas.  Praise the Lord!

(UPDATE) 10 DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS.  Take intentional steps to trust the Lord with any cares or anxiety as you face the holidays.  Then walk by faith at the direction of His word, will, and Spirit to find His path and understand His plan for you, your family and your ministry.  Lord bless your preparation to fellowship in the Holy Spirit and follow God’s plan to overcome and celebrate well!
