Merry Christmas from Pastor Michael and his family

Dear Community family and friends,

 

Our family would like to extend to you a very Merry Christmas.  We are grateful for your love and your sharing life with us. 

 

It is hard to believe that this day marks nine years of doing ministry together.  Yes, it was on Christmas Eve in 2006 that we opened our very first clothes closet and gave our very first free community meal.  And like the Timex watch, we keep on ticking.  God is so good…all the time.

 

We love each of you, and thank you for love and friendship.  Thank you for walking with us through the trials and the celebrations of this year.  There is much more to come!

 

Matthew 1:21-23  NASB

She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins." 22 Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet: 23 "Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel," which translated means, "God with us."

 

Christmas is a special time of the year.  Be encouraged to spend time with your family and friends and spend extra time focusing on the meaning and person of this holiday, that would be Jesus.

 

2015 is about to come to a close in a little more than 7 days.  This year has brought challenges and celebrations.  Just over a week from now I will be you to join me and our church leaders in a push to make our church's new campus a reality.  Honestly I believe that the church is not about bricks or mortar, buildings and budgets, but the church is about the people.  God died for and gives abundant life to people, not things.  Our hearts should be bursting to do what God calls to do, to love who God loves and to give and share what God has blessed us with.  That is much more than money.  In fact every area of our lives ought to breathe and breed generosity.

 

Psalm 112:4  NLT

Light shines in the darkness for the godly. They are generous, compassionate, and righteous.

 

We want to turn the glory of God around so it becomes a spot light to shine on and point others to God.  He is our reason.  He is the only hope.

 

We want to wish you a very, merry Christmas, and we pray you will have a blessed Jesus celebration this Christmas day…

 

With GOD as my guide,

 

Pastor Michael Harrison and family

-- James 1:5
