A NOTE FROM OUR PRESIDENT
During the Christmas season we gather together to celebrate a time of friends and family and good will. But even more we celebrate the birth of Christ. Jesus being born in the sleepy little town of Bethlehem was another part of the Father’s beautiful plan to redeem us back to Him. “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).As we continue on through the last part of December my prayer is that you will remember just how much God loves you and that you will be able to experience the true meaning of Christmas in a way that you never have before.
