A NOTE FROM OUR PASTOR

Bruce G. Chesser

The calendar has turned to December, and all around us we see the sights and sounds of Christmas. Every light should be a reminder that Jesus is the light of the world. Every gift should remind us that God loved the world so much that He gave us His only Son. Every time you speak the words “Merry Christmas” to someone, you are reminding them about the birth of Jesus. The world will try to reshape it into “happy holidays,” but never forget that it is all about Jesus.

This morning we will conclude our study in the book of Philippians as we look at the final verses in Philippians 4: 14-23. For the next few weeks, we will focus on passages about the birth of Jesus. After the first of the year, we will turn our attention to the letter of 1 John.

Thank you for gathering with God’s people in God’s house to study God’s Word. I am glad that you are here!

CONNECTING EVERY GENERATION, TO GOD, OTHERS & SERVICE

SUNDAY CONNECT

with Senior Associate Pastor, Bruce Raley

Churches provide a variety of ways to memorialize or honor people at Christmas time. We choose to do so through the purchase of Bibles. There is no better gift than the Word of God, whether at Christmas or any other occasion throughout the year. We partner with the Gideons to obtain and distribute these Bibles.

The Gideons International has a singular focus. It exists to distribute Bibles globally. The Gideons continue to have access to distribute Bibles in schools, hotels, hospitals, prisons, and in other strategic locations. In addition, they have the opportunity to send Bibles into over 200 countries and territories.

Many members of our church are Gideons. They have many stories of how a Bible provided from the Gideons led a person to Christ. They can share of how a Gideon Bible restored family relationships, and how broken lives were redeemed.

As you plan gifts for the special people in your life this Christmas, please consider a generous gift for the purchase of Bibles. The Gideons will be in the Worship Center foyer before and after services until Christmas. They would be glad to help you.

Your gift might make the difference of eternity in someone’s life!

It is an honor to serve you.

Bruce Raley
