Memory Verse
“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled. (Luke 2:38).

Life Lessons
Among the last events before the arrival of God’s Son on planet Earth were two baby announcements. First, an angel told an aged priest and his equally aged wife would have a child who would become the forerunner of Messiah. Then a young virgin was told that she would give birth to that Messiah. The angel Gabriel told her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus”. The God of wonder brought His Son into the world with announcements of the impossible to a couple too old and a girl too young. What amazing declarations! He was sending His Son for all.

Ladies Bible Study
No Bible Study until January 4, 2023.

Annual Christmas Offering
Throughout the month of December, we are asking all of you to give a special offering (above your regular giving) to help
us end the year in good shape financially. This is very important to the continuation of God’s work. And as we give, we will remember the words of Scripture: “God loves a cheerful giver”; When we all take part joyfully, God will use us to share the Word faithfully both here and around the world.
Christmas Candlelight Service December 25th
We will celebrate the day of our Lord’s birth with a special Christmas Candlelight Communion service on December 25th at 11:00 AM. (Please note that there will be no Bible Fellowship that day.)
