SOAPING WEEKLY - In order to prepare your spirit for the message each week, S.O.A.P. through a passage (read the Scripture, make your Observation, find a specific Application, and write a Prayer) in advance of Sunday service.  Suggested SOAPing Scripture passages for the next few weeks are: Dec 23 – Blessed Hope – Titus 2:11-14; Dec 30 – Christ our Hope – I Timothy 6:17-19

CHRISTMAS SCHEDULE - The Christmas Eve Service will be Monday, December 24th, at 6:00 pm. As always, children are welcome to come in their pjs.

GOOD NEWS CLUB - Good News Club continues growing strong with 84 kids registered in the current school year. We closed out the first half of the club year on December 5th with a special presentation of the Christmas story and distribution of gift bags to all the kids plus new Children’s Bibles and a copy of the Jesus film to 41 of our students who are new to club this year. The best gifts to report are that, including the 8 children who’ve made salvation decisions in this first 12 weeks of club, the Lord has given us the privilege of leading 16 children to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ in 2018 through the ministries of Good News Club and summer 5 Day Club. Want to be a part of what God is doing in this vital ministry? During our winter break we hope to prepare 3 new adult and 3 new student volunteers to begin serving when club resumes on January 23rd. Donna Rodgers has all the details and is anxiously awaiting an opportunity to talk with you should the Lord be calling you to take the next step in being The Church to this abundant harvest field.
