5 DAYS BEFORE CHRISTMAS… (Or you could use the official countdown online…)
4th SUNDAY OF ADVENT. TODAY we light the Candle of Love. Please worship with us as we read John 3:16-19 and 1 John 4:7-12, light the Candle of Love, and pray… “Teach us, through Your Holy Spirit, how to walk in obedience to Your LOVE…”
THANK YOU FOR GIVING TO CHRISTMAS BLESSING 2020! This year’s generous gifts totaled $1,425! Please pray with us God’s blessing over these gifts and the precious people who will receive them. Merry Christmas!
ALTERNATIVE CHRISTMAS OUTREACH CONTINUES… We want to involve you (your family) in blessing someone who could use a blessing either in your extended family or network in the community. What is our plan for blessing others…? This Sunday and next you will find on the back table in the lobby Dillon’s Gift cards, Christmas Cards, and plain note cards. Each family/household is invited to take “one or two” of each of the cards. Then come together as a household and determine whom you feel the Lord wants you to bless. Once you have decided who to bless, fill out the Christmas Card, place the Dillon’s Gift card inside, mail or give the gift, and jot down who you blessed and why on the note card and place it in the basket in the lobby so the stories of blessing can be shared. These stories do not need to include specific names… they are just an opportunity to share in the blessing.
