Pastor’s Pen

The big day is almost here! I’m so excited about worshiping with you on Christmas Eve. Be sure to come to either the 4 p.m. or 6 p.m. service. I know that you will find a great blessing as we celebrate the birth of Christ.

But wait, there’s more!

Christmas Day we will have a ONE Service at 10:30 a.m. There will be no Connection, Sunday School, or Nursery that morning, but just as on any other Sunday we will be worshiping Christ. We will have some special musical offerings, and children may bring a toy and even wear their pajamas! This will be a special time for our congregation.

Our community of faith is near and dear to my heart. It is the place in which my family centers its life. It is the place that loves and nourishes us in many ways. Our church is our family.

In that spirit, I invite you to join me in making a special year-end gift to our church. I know that you will be blessed by doing so as an act of worship on either Christmas Eve or Day. And I know that your gift will help us finish the year strong and begin 2017 with the resources we need to continue to reach and minister to our community.

I’ll see you this Christmas weekend. May the rest of these Advent days bring you holiness and peace.
