I wanted to take this opportunity during this Christmas Season to send a letter to the entire congregation here at (NAME OF CHURCH).
What a year it has been! We had an election season unlike any I have seen, and I don’t know about you, but I’m just glad to be on the other side of it! America is reminded once again of deep divisions in so many areas, yet for the Christian, it serves as a reminder that we are to pray for our nation, as well as those who are serving in leadership regardless of where our political leanings may take us.

Truly at this Christmas Season, we are reminded that we are greatly blessed because of the love of God which was showed in such a powerful way by sending His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ to come to this earth.
We celebrate Christmas, and in that celebration, gifts are given and gifts are received. Many do so with little, or no thought of the real meaning of Christmas, yet for the Christian, it is so much more than what we see reflected in the world. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
We are so grateful to the Lord for all His bountiful blessings during this past year, and while there have been many challenges for families, churches, and yes, even our nation, isn’t it good to now we serve a powerful God!
This time of year is amazing! It’s a wonderful time when we cast our focus on the miracle of Christ’s birth over 2,000 years ago as He left the splendor of heaven to humble Himself and walk the dusty roads of Israel speaking life and healing into the lives of the people.
I still believe we serve the same God today! How many lives we have seen come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and their lives have been completely changed by His power. For people who know the Lord, it’s so much more than endless gifts and expenses at this time of year, but it’s about living a relationship with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords on a daily basis.

Church Welcome – Easter Sunday (Life after Easter Theme)
Welcome to Church! We are so glad you have chosen to worship the Lord with us here at (NAME OF CHURCH) on Easter Sunday!
We live in a world of many challenges and with each passing day, it seems the challenges become more numerous. People are searching for “someone” to lead them out of despair and difficulties within their own lives, yet in reality, this is exactly the way it was in the time Jesus walked the dusty roads of Israel prior to His crucifixion.

When I was a child, I was always confused by the phrase “Good Friday.” Usually, we don’t look upon the death of a loved one and call it “good.” On the contrary, we grieve and mourn for the loss of life. That being said, how could the day of our Savior’s violent death be called good? Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my lambs.” A second time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Tend my sheep.” He said to him the third time, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter felt hurt because he said to him the third time, Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
Easter Service Invitation (Evangelistic Opportunity)
Resurrection Greetings in Christ!
Most of us know that Easter and Christmas are two times during the calendar year of the church that people are most likely to attend church, yet did you know there are far more people who would attend if they had a simple invitation?
Thom Rainer, a Christian blogger and researcher recently polled over 300 non-churched people, and found that ninety-six percent of them are at least are at least somewhat likely to attend church if invited! Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
