December Letter From Pastor Reggie
Christmas time is here, and I believe this truly is the most wonderful time of the year! Everywhere you look there are themes of joy, peace, gift giving, and celebrations. People go out of their way to show extra kindness and wish others a “Merry Christmas!” What is even more exciting is that we know the real reason behind all this joy!
Scripture records the angel’s words to the shepherds in Luke 2:10-11 “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
Christmas is all about our Savior, Jesus Christ, and how He came to earth to dwell among us. Jesus is the center of our world. Everything past, present, and future; it all points to Him, and that is why we celebrate His birth this time of year.
I can’t think of a greater opportunity we have as a Church than to reach out to people in our community and share the true joy of Christmas. In your workplace, at the stores, in school, with friends and family, everywhere you go, make a special point to share this joy that we have. Invite someone to join you for one of the many worship or fellowship times we have this month. You might just be surprised at how receptive they are this time of year!
Bea and I are praying this will be the most Wonderful Christmas you and your family have ever had!
