We hope this letter finds you well. As Christmas approaches, we wanted to take a moment to let you know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
We know that this holiday season may be a little different for you as you are unable to physically join us in church. However, we want you to know that you are not alone and that you are still an important part of our church community.

Being homebound can be challenging, especially during the holidays when it's natural to want to be with loved ones and friends. However, we want you to know that you are not alone and are still a valued and essential part of our church community.
As we continue to maneuver through challenging times in our nation and the world, I thought it would be of value to send a note to encourage you.
With each passing day, we are confronted with higher prices on every hand. Gas and fuel prices have impacted every one of us in ways we could not have predicted unless we experienced it first-hand. We seem to be “turning the corner” as far as the pandemic is concerned, but now we are dealing with unprecedented inflation.
On behalf of the Membership and Adherents of FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH, I would like to take this opportunity to send this letter of congratulations on your election to the Church Board at our Annual Business Meeting.
What a joy and privilege it is to serve in this area of leadership here at the church, and I trust you will feel welcome right from the beginning as we continue to forge ahead into the future. I'm excited about all the things the Lord has been doing in our midst and know that you are too!
One of the most popular Christmas movies is entitled: “It's a Wonderful Life.”
In this movie, George Bailey, played by Jimmy Stewart, became quite unhappy with his life through challenging events he encountered. While he had hopes and dreams of his own, due to the death of his Father, he felt “stuck” in his hometown as he took leadership of the Savings and Loan, soon to be defunct.
As it appeared that everything had been lost due to the wrong actions of “Mr. Potter,” he was moved to the edge of despair. He wondered aloud whether the town and world would have been better off if he had not been born.
I won't share any more of the story with you in case you haven't seen the movie, but I would highly recommend it for anyone to view who may need a reminder of the value of their life!
