Greetings and grace to you church family. The cooler weather is surely making if feel like Christmas! I cannot wait until this coming week— our gatherings on 12/19, 12/24 and 12/26 will be filled with wonderful blessings. Don't miss out!
I WANTED TO SHARE WITH YOU THAT, BECAUSE OF YOUR OPEN-HANDED GENEROSITY, CHRISTMAS WILL BE A BLESSING FOR MANY OF "THE LEAST OF THESE" AS WELL! YOUR KING IS PLEASED MY PEEPS!!!!!
You went above and beyond in answering the call to serve those we partner with in seeing the gospel go out in tangible ways throughout the globe. Here are just a few things the Holy Spirit inspired you to do:
You brought in 270 Shoeboxes— 70 more than our goal and 100 more than ever before.
You purchased more than 100 'long-lasting' Bibles for our new friends at i6eight ministries.
You raised more than $3000 for our ministry partners in Costa Rica.
You completely furnished our new brother's new apartment to help him get off to a great start on his new journey in his new life.
In addition, because of your ongoing faithfulness to the King and His kingdom, we were able to send an additional $2000 oversees to our partners in hard places.
And you gave $1000 to local groups that stand to protect and defend Christian liberty in our state and nation.
I am SO VERY PROUD of you all! Truly, at a time when we are all working to make ends meet in our own lives and church, your open-handedness is humbling to me as your pastor. Well, WELL DONE good and faithful servants. You have been faithful in a little, He will reward you much.
MUCH love and Merry CHRISTMAS!
