Invitation to Annual Church Christmas Banquet

Dear (FIRST NAME),

Greetings in Christ!

As we approach the advent season, many of us will be preparing for company. The holidays are a wonderful time and often bring distant friends and family together for quality time to celebrate the coming of our Lord. Many of us are anticipating a lot of joy, laughs, and great food. Tables will be set and houses adorned with shining lights and many shades of green, red, and white. The glowing Christmas trees reminds us of the tree of life who is Christ. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

First Sunday 0f Advent Church Letter or Welcome

Greetings in Christ the Savior!

Thank you for joining us! Today marks the first Sunday in this time of the Church year that we call Advent. Although we celebrate this season each year, many are not sure what the season is all about. The word “Advent” simply means “arrival.” It is the manifestation of something long-awaited. It is a time that we reflect on Israel’s promised savior and remember his birth, as well as anticipate his return. It is a time of joyous remembrance and eager anticipation.

Second Sunday in Advent Church Letter or Welcome

Greetings in Jesus the King!

Welcome! Today is the second Sunday in the Advent season. Can you think of some of the Biblical themes of this season? Certainly, the love and faithfulness of God our Father is high up there, but have you ever considered the idea of hope? Although it may not be the first thing that comes to mind during the Christmas season, there is much to consider. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!

Fourth Sunday in Advent Church Letter or Welcome

Greetings in Jesus!

Welcome! We are inching ever closer to Christmas day, the day that we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, the light of the world. We are coming to that realization that God is in our midst. As the prophet says:

The Lord, your God, is in your midst, a mighty Savior; He will rejoice over you with gladness, and renew you in His love, He will sing joyfully because of you, as one sings at festivals.

Dear Church,

On Wednesday, November 22 at 5:30 in the evening, we will be gathering together as a church for our annual Thanksgiving Eve service, and we would love to have you join us, and bring family and friends to this special service celebrating our many blessings.

Thanksgiving has been celebrated as an official national holiday in the US since 1864, when, during the American Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of “Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens,” to be celebrated on the last Thursday in November.

Dear Friends and Family of FCC,

Winter is rapidly approaching, and with winter comes the cold temperatures that present such a challenge for our homeless population.

For the past six years, FCC has been able to partner with Outreach Ministries, an organization dedicated to serving the homeless here in our city. Outreach provides weekly meals, counseling services, legal advice and social services to people who find themselves living on the streets. They also hold weekly Bible studies and a church service on Sunday mornings. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
