Christmas Blog #2
Merry Christmas Celebrators! There are only nine days until Christmas. There has never been a better time to share Jesus with people everywhere you go. Come on family; let’s spread the Christmas hope and cheer!
Sundays rock at Celebration! We get to be together as a church family, sing about Jesus, study God’s Word, experience life change, give to God’s work, and get refueled for the week ahead. I look forward to seeing you every week and am so privileged to be a part of what God is doing here at Celebration. I love the warm family atmosphere here, where everyone is welcome.
This Sunday, December 21, we have a double-header. We worship together at our usual 10:30 a.m. service. Then, at 6:00 p.m., we gather again for our very special Christmas worship service. We will sing Christmas carols, dedicate our children to the Lord, baptize new believers, and draw near to God for the Lord’s Table. Afterwards, we will enjoy some snacks together. Please do not let anything keep you away from this very special evening of celebrating Jesus. This will be a highlight of the year!
If you plan to dedicate your children to the Lord on Sunday, please respond to this email and let me know the parents and children’s names, so that we can have a certificate of dedication for you. Also, if you plan to be baptized, please respond to this email and let me know your name. Bring a change of clothes and a towel with you, and meet me in the worship center at 5:30 Sunday night. I am so excited about what God will do as we dedicate ourselves and our children and families to God.
Then, on Sunday, December 28, at 6:00 p.m. we will gather for our annual family meeting where we celebrate what God has done at Celebration this year, cast vision for next year, and vote on our new 2015 budget. God has done miraculous things in our midst, and we are excited to give Him the glory for what He has accomplished. Come out and Celebrate with us for this very special night.
I pray that each of you have a Christ-filled Christmas, and honor Him in 2015 in a greater way than ever before. Joanna and I love each of you very much, and wish you the very best.
The best Is yet to come!
