Christmas Vacation!

This has been a long and very rewarding week of work.  God richly blessed our worship on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  All who came were encouraged by God's love in the sending of His Son, Christ our Lord.  The Father received our praises and prayers and gifts.  The candles that lit up our sanctuary might have been like the stars that shown on that first Christmas Eve.  It's an awesome thought that we really did celebrate the birth of the One who does bring peace on earth through the forgiveness of sins that Christ earned through His perfect life, sacrificial death and victorious resurrection. 

I'm going to take a little break from the blog.  I'll check in again on Monday, December 6.  In the meantime, you can check out the video of the sermon from December 22.  Our webmaster, Dan Seabreeze, records the sermons from time to time and it especially gives folks who are thinking about visiting our church a bit of a flavor of our worship.  Also, if you are looking for a daily devotional and prayer guide, check out Treasuring God's Word.  Hit the tab in the right column and you'll find a daily reading and a prayer starter.  Busy people find Treasuring God's Word to be a helpful tool.

Worship this weekend takes place on Saturday at 5 pm with a Communion Service.  On Sunday, we meet at 8 and 10:45 am and Bible classes for all ages begins at 9:20 am.  Also, worship on New Year's Eve will be held on Dec. 31 at 7 pm and Communion will be included. 

Thanks for taking the time to read the blog this year.  Continue to enjoy the Christmas season and have a blessed New Year!
