Christmas 2007

If I could figure out how to upload a picture or two I would show you what we as a church have done this year.  We provided over 20 families with a Christmas this year.  These families are our neighbors who live less than 2 miles from our building.  It was a blessing to be able to see the faces of the teachers at the local school when we dropped the gifts off for the families.  In case your wondering we partnered with the school in our neighborhood because they have a better read on different family situations.

Last night we had our annual Christmas party.  Instead of inviting our sister churches I focused heavily on our neighborhood.  We had several neighbors come and join us for an evening of Christmas caroling and refreshments.  One of the comments I heard was that, “You are normal!”  Wow, I really wonder what misconceptions are out there about us. 

My prayer is that God will continue to empower us to serve our neighborhood so that we can be his hands and feet as we invite people to become disciples of Jesus so that they too can enter into the reign of God.
