Good morning, I can't wait until Sunday. Each year we celebrate the Christmas season with our Choir leading the way. This Sunday is our Choir presentation and it always helps me focus in on Jesus coming to save us! Bring someone along, they will thank you.
 
If you are looking for a good book to read at the end/start of the year, try out Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less by Greg McKeown. Although this is not a 'church' book it is written by a follower of Jesus and is on my yearly read list. If you are starting to feel over scheduled or lacking purpose, this book is excellent to help refocus your time and energy.
 
Have you every wondered what to say to guests at church. HERE is a great article to help out. The responsibility to welcome guests rests on all of our shoulders. Our Sunday worship service is the place most first time guests will come and it is our first line of evangelism as a church. Most guests decide within the first couple of minutes if they will return, when we are sensitive to this we might just be helping clear the way for someone to hear from God.
 
A challenging quote from Martin Luther King, Jr.
"If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven played music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.”

Whatever work we are called to is holy work and an opportunity to honor God.
 
40 Days of Prayer is coming in 2018, more to come!
 
And of course the funny video, Christmas songs are the target.
 
Need -
If you have a spare flat screen (they are light and easy to move) TV at home that is not being used, we could use a couple for our Bible Study rooms. Thanks for consideration.
 
Onward!
Chris
