Church, I bless you as we are in the Christmas season of joy and peace. I am excited for this Sunday as we look at Christmas traditions. I know that we all want to keep Christ in Christmas. You are going to come and be so blessed and encouraged by all that God has for us together as His family.  This is a great week to bring your friends and family to hear about God’s love displayed in the coming of Jesus. This season is especially relevant for those we know who do not regularly come to church, whether they have never been or have stopped coming. I encourage you to bring them this week and next.  
 
I am excited for this Saturday.  We are going out to bless our neighbors with the love of Jesus.  We will be inviting them to the Christmas services, giving them a $5 Starbucks gift card and praying for them if they desire.  This is not out of your comfort zone!  Trust me, this will be a great time of blessing for you and for our neighbors.  I look forward to seeing you this Saturday - we'll meet at 9:30 a.m. in the church Hub.
 
Have a blessed day and see you Sunday at one of our services. Main Campus is located at Fowler/Ashlan and meets at 8:30, 10 and 11:30 a.m.  Our Sunnyside Campus meets at Sunnyside High School at 9:30 and 11 a.m. 
 
In God’s Grip and for God’s Glory,
 
Fred Leonard
 
Lead Pastor
