the God of Israel,
because he has come to his people
and redeemed them.”
There was a much bigger plan than to begin a fun holiday!

You may find the following article interesting. It’s certainly a group I had never heard about.
LOTTIE MOON CHRISTMAS OFFERING
This is the special time of the year when people in our churches contribute to this great offering to help missionaries who serve all around the world. One special fact about the LMCO is the 100% of the offering is used on thee mission fields. Give so that others can learn about Jesus and be encouraged to take him into their hearts and lives.
It’s cold and flu season. This includes Covid. Try to say clear of these illnesses which seem to be spreading.
TODAY’S PRAYER FOCUS
Have you ever been so sick your family went to a Christmas gathering without you? I have!
Have you ever visited a loved one in the hospital on Christmas? have.
Have your family members had to pause between a wake and a funeral to have Christmas for the children in the family. We have?
Most families will have happy Christmas celebrations and focus on Jesus, children, and all things happy, BUT other families will have sick members who cannot even attend family celebrations, visit in a hospital all during the holidays, and bury a loved one during this Christmas season.
Be thankful if you are blessed not to have sickness and/or death during the Christmas season. Pray for the families who do. Do something special for the families. Express your thanks to God.
