The snow is flying, the Christmas Tree is up and decorated, the Christmas lists are being gathered, and the Nativity scene is on display in front of the tree. Seems like yesterday that we were going through this process and yet it has been a year. Hard to believe.


We are going to have a sermon series this Advent about The Journey to Bethlehem. Through the prophets and the scriptures, we will follow the journey of the faithful as we follow the hope of the world as it moves toward Bethlehem.


While we walk to Bethlehem, we will be talking about our ability to affect the world through our apportionment giving. This year our goal is to give 100% of our apportionments. Allowing us to be part of the mission work in third world countries, to be wherever tragedy strikes anywhere in the world through UMCOR, and help those less fortunate here in the United States. We need you to accomplish this goal to keep the Lord’s work moving forward to better the lives of all it touches.


Come join us this year during Advent, take the Journey to Bethlehem with your church community, and have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.


                  Yours in Christ,

                               Pastor Mark
