Christmas 2016

by Pastor Mike Winfree on December 1, 2016
Dear Church Family,
        I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I know we did!  It comes and goes so fast, and then we begin to focus on Christmas.  The month will be filled with so many things: the parade, Live Nativity, parties, shopping, traveling, decorating, eating, and eating some more.  All of these things are important, but remember Christ, the reason for this season, to put Him first.  During this month, take the time to sit down with your Bible and read about His birth and reflect on how important that was.  I read it every year to my family as our tradition. 
There was no greater gift ever given than Jesus Christ.  Find ways to share Him with others during this season. One way is by inviting people to the Live Nativity.  Pick up some cards and pass them out to those you know and to those you don’t know.
As this year comes to an end, and we begin 2017, make a commitment to read God’s Word through next year.  Make a commitment to be faithful in your attendance to Sunday School and Worship.  Make a commitment to be involved in some ministry or ministries.
Our building will be completed in January.  Thanks for praying and for giving.  Please continue to do both.
On January 8, 2017,  I will give my “State of the Church” message.  Please make plans to be here that Sunday.
In closing, Jane and I would like to wish each and everyone a “Merry Christmas”!

Serving the Savior,
Pastor Mike
