Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
WOW! It doesn't seem possible that we're ready to say goodbye to 2009 and welcome 2010! Where did this last year go? This week though, we do pause to celebrate the birth of our Lord with family and friends. Let's work hard to keep Christ in Christmas this year! He IS the reason for this season.
Matthew 1:21 tells us that he would be called Jesus, for he will save His people from their sins.
As we celebrate, let us remember that he came to save us from our sins. This was made possible on the cross. So, let us say, "Happy Birthday Jesus!" And let us be forever greatful for the forgiveness that was given to us on the cross!
As I look forward to 2010, I am tired looking at the calendar, which is already filling up! We have Hallelujah 2010 with One Way Street on January 9th; the Valentine's Banquet will be February 13th, and then, I will be going to Israel March 2-11. JUST 9 WEEKS AWAY!!! Thanks again to PCBC for making this possible! Then when I get back it will only be 2 weeks until our Spring Revival March 28-31 with Braxton Hunter. A week later, April 3rd will be our Annual Easter Egg Hunt, and April 4th is Easter Sunday! That makes for a busy busy busy 1st 4 months of the year. But instead of being overwhelmed, I'm excited about the opportunities to reach people this next year!
OUR THEME FOR 2010 IS: "BRING THEM IN, IN 2010!!!" Let's do just that! Invite, Invite, Invite. There are plenty of special occasions to get your friends and family to come, and I believe if they will come God will do an awesome work in their lives. May God bless each one of you as we serve Him together at PCBC in 2010!
Again, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
