“For unto us a child is born,
unto us a son is given….

~Isaiah 9:6a~

Welcome to our special Children’s Christmas program this morning.  My special thank you to all our parents and preschool/children’s ministry workers who have practiced hard to minister to us this morning.  Starting today and going through Sunday January 6th we switch back to our Single Worship Hour schedule.  That means that all LifeGroups meet during the 9:30-10:30 hour, with the Worship Service happening at 11:00am only.  Room assignment information is available at the Welcome Desk.

Only three more Sundays left in our Lottie Moon Christmas Missions offering.  Will you ask God to enable you to give a special gift this month to help spread the good news of Jesus and keep our missionaries on the field?  If each of us can give an extra $30 toward this offering, we will meet our goal.

Welcome to our new missionaries-in-residence, Ron and Ellen Calligan and family, who moved into our Mission Home this past week.  I encourage all of you to get to know them, spend time with them, and take advantage of the opportunity to learn more about what God is doing through missions around the world.

We come together this evening at 6:00 for a church family business meeting to approve the 2019 Church Ministry Budget that was previewed last month.  In addition, we’ll vote on some extra missions gifts and a recommendation concerning the first phase of our next building program.  I hope that you can be here tonight.

Thank you to all those who have helped decorate our church for Christmas – it looks beautiful around here!  We are praying for God’s highest blessings on you as you live for Him this Christmas.
