Here's a thought for you; Christmas is all around us and yet you have to stop and consider what Christmas is really about. It you don't focus on the real meaning of our Savior being born, you may become lost in the world's wrapping paper. I think we can apply this truth to most things in life. You can be married and yet there are times when you need to consider what marriage is all about. You can be a parent and stray from the purpose of why God gave you your children. You can be a Christian and get lost in the doing of things that need to get done rather than understanding who you are, you are a child of the King. I know that you know the real meaning of Christmas so keep that in mind as you lift up your head, smile, and rejoice.
This Sunday morning I'll be sharing on 'Simeon The Prophet.' Mary and Joseph took baby Jesus to the temple to be dedicated when Simeon arrived and asked to hold the child. Simeon said some profound things about who Jesus was and who He would be to the world.
I want to thank all the volunteers who made our banquet last weekend a great success and I know that next weekend there will be a lot of volunteering to make things work. God has been so good to our church to give us a membership that is full of such wondering willing believers. In light of all this activity there will be no evening service this Sunday,rest up as we prepare for the busy days ahead.
Next Saturday Dec. 20th is a practice for the Sunday School Christmas presentation. On Sunday morning the 21st is the Christmas Concert and Sunday evening there will be a night of special music, word, and fellowship. On Wednesday Dec. 24th 10:30 am we sing about our Savior's Birth at Loaves and Fishes. Come at 10 if you would like to help out with the singing.
Continue to pray for all those in need. Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, lots of love Pastor Kevin and Alice
