Love From Your Pastor

“She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21 ESV)

6 days until Christmas! This Sunday, the 4th week of Advent, we will be enjoying “A Super Christmas”, our Children’s Christmas Program! I hope you will join us at 10:30 to support the kids and gain a fresh perspective of the Christmas message.

Once again, a few reminders of key upcoming events:

This Saturday, Dec. 21, at 8am – Men’s Breakfast. Join us guys, for great physical food, spiritual food, and a time of fellowship!

Also this Sunday, Dec. 22, from 3pm to 6pm – Open House at the Beach family home! Come enjoy a sweet time of goodies, fellowship, Christmas music and decorations, and a giant tree! Call me for directions if needed.

Tuesday, Dec. 24, at 6pm – Christmas by Candlelight. A beautiful annual tradition, where we sing Christmas songs, reflect on the coming of the Light of the World, Jesus, and light our candles as we sing Silent Night. Pastor Justin will be sharing a brief message out of Philippians 2.

Dec. 28-30 – Winter Youth Celebration in Portland (for high schoolers – see Pastor Justin for info).

Sunday, Dec. 29, from Noon to 3pm – Membership Class. You must RSVP for this opportunity so we know how much lunch to prepare! Call me or let me know this Sunday.

Every year at this time, I like to encourage you all to join me in a Bible reading plan for the coming year. This coming year (2020) I will be using a “Dual Chronological One Year Plan”. Erika has put together the plan on blue paper folded to fit in our Bibles, available on a table in the church foyer. If you want to take a look at the plan now, you can click HERE. You will see that “this plan was compiled … from One Year Bible Online but adjusted so that the Old and New Testament are read each day in their respective chronological order.” I’m excited to get started January 1!

Love From Your Pastor,
