Christmas Church Letter 2020

Christmas Greetings!

What a year it has been, and it's not even over yet!

If you are like me at all, there are times we look back over this past year in wonder and amazement. It often leaves me shaking my head a bit and even saying out loud from time to time, “I never saw that coming”!

From the Global Pandemic at the beginning of the year continuing through even now, as well as racial and political tensions, can there be any doubt that we need God more now than ever before?

One thought seems to help me balance out many things we see now, and it is this; “Not one time has God ever stated how surprised He has been by all this”!

Thanksgiving Letter to Church 2020

Happy Thanksgiving!

On behalf of the staff here at (NAME OF CHURCH), I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you and yours a wonderful Thanksgiving Season.

Without a doubt, we could spend much time focusing on the many things going wrong in our Nation, but I want to remind us of the tremendous importance and calling we have to be a people of Thankfulness!

1 Chronicles 16:34 (NKJV) 34 Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.

Rudyard Kipling was a great writer and poet whose writings we have all enjoyed. Unlike many old writers, Kipling was one of the few who had the opportunity to enjoy his success while he lived. He also made a great deal of money at his trade.

Easter Letter 2020 – Easter is NOT CANCELED

Greetings in Christ!

We have been going through tremendous difficulty, both in our country and around the world, due to Covid-19 or Coronavirus. Many businesses are shutting down as well as numerous cancellations and postponements of events we took for granted only a few short weeks ago.

Yet, let me remind you today that Easter is NOT CANCELED! Indeed, we may celebrate the Resurrection a bit differently this year than we ever have. Still, I believe because Jesus rose from the grave, we have tremendous hope for today, tomorrow, and all eternity!

Easter Letter 2020 – All Things are Possible!

Resurrection Greetings!

We are coming upon that particular time on our calendar that we spend in appreciating what the Lord did for us on the Cross. Yet, beyond that, when He arose from the grave on the third day morning.

The women went to the tomb for the sole purpose of anointing Jesus' body with spices, as was the custom of the day.

Mark 16:1-6 (NKJV) 1 Now when the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, that they might come and anoint Him. 2 Very early in the morning, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb when the sun had risen. 3 And they said among themselves, “Who will roll away the stone from the door of the tomb for us?” 4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled away–for it was very large. 5 And entering the tomb, they saw a young man clothed in a long white robe sitting on the right side; and they were alarmed. 6 But he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid Him.

Easter Letter 2020 – It Is Finished!

Resurrection Greetings!

On that very first “Good Friday” over 2,000 years ago, as Jesus drew His final breath on the cross, He uttered those amazing words… “it is finished”!

He drank of the bitter cup of suffering and pain both before, and while He hung on the cross. His mission to come to this earth to provide hope and forgiveness of sin was completed both then, and now!

“It is finished” is the Greek translation of “Tetelestai.” It comes from the verb “teleo” which means “to bring to an end, to complete, to accomplish.” Yet, it did not mean that “He” was finished because there was, and still is, work to do!
