I wanted to take this opportunity as we approach Christmas to send a note of encouragement to you.
What a wonderful time of year it is as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! For centuries, lives have been changed one by one through the powerful grace and mercy He offers to those who will simply accept what He did on the cross over 2,000 years ago.

It’s almost time! Yes, it’s almost time for our Annual Children’s Christmas Program here at (NAME OF CHURCH). The program will be held this year on (DAY AND DATE) at (TIME) right here at the church!
What a wonderful time it is for the Children as they share the various words and songs that celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Some of you might remember “way back” when you were part of the program and how much it meant to look out and see the place packed with people.

Some of you who were brought up in the church may remember something called “testimony service”. This was a special time when people would get up to declare the works of the Lord in their own lives. This had a couple of purposes as it served to remind them and “cement” that in their hearts that God cares for them personally, but it also served as a way to inspire and bless others who might have been going through much of the same thing at that point in life.

It’s hard to believe, but Christmas is almost here! It seems like it was just a “few days ago” since last Christmas, but as you know, time passes quickly!
This is usually the most anticipated time of year for children all across our nation and the world as parents do their best to give them a Christmas they will remember for a long time. I don’t know about you, but some of my fondest memories of Christmas don’t really have to do with “big toys” or “expensive gifts”, but good quality family time.

Once again we are nearing the time of year in which we make an extra effort to show our appreciation to the Lord for His tremendous blessings and provision in our lives. What a blessed holiday Thanksgiving is!
Perhaps there’s a time in your life you can think back to when things were a bit of a challenge financially. You wondered where the money for the next meal was going to come from, or quite possibly gas money was in short supply because of the need to use it for the more pressing need of food for your family.

As we draw closer to the Holiday Season in which we celebrate a time of thankfulness just prior to remembering and appreciating the birth of our Savior, we thought it would be nice to observe the Thanksgiving season in a unique way.
During the month of November we will dedicate space on one of our walls in the church foyer as a “Wall of Thanks”. On this space we will hang paper, and we are asking each and every person who would like to share a thought, testimonial or drawing of what they are thankful for by using the supplied colored pencils to share.

Appeal to Assist Financially During Christmas Holiday
Warm Holiday Greetings!
With the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays just around the corner, we are taking this opportunity to send a note to all who attend here at (NAME OF CHURCH) so that we might share a very special way to get involved in being a blessing to someone in need.
As you know, this time of year not only is a tremendous time of celebrating our thankfulness to the Lord as well as celebrating His birth, but even in the midst of all the festivities that take place, we are often reminded of the difficulties people go through as well. While the intention for families is not usually the desire to “keep up with the Jones’s” so to speak, there is a desire on the part of parents to bless their children with a few gifts.

We are looking forward to a wonderful service the Sunday before Thanksgiving as we take time to appreciate and express our thanks to the Lord for His bountiful blessings in our lives.
I’m reminded a bit about a tremendous story in the Bible Luke 17:11-19 where Jesus healed 10 lepers. Yet, while 9 of the lepers went their way rejoicing in their healing, only 1 of them in fact turned around to go back to express his thanks to the Lord for the miracle that had taken place in his life.
Imagine that! 1 out of 10 said thank you! We are often so quick to correct and instruct our children when it comes to the importance of saying “thank you”, but you and I are challenged on a weekly basis, and yes, even daily to express our love and appreciation to the Lord.

“Your letters have been a great help to our ministry. You’re right, thinking and thinking of what to say can wear you down... so your letters have been a great help. The letters continue to be a blessing to both Andrae and myself. Thank you for being faithful to helping so many in the ministry."

"I hardly consider myself ever being at a loss for words, but churchletters.org has been an amazing blessing to me in reaching and connecting with friends, colleagues and ministry leaders. Sometimes I use an entire letter that speaks my heart. Other times I use just a phrase that helps me better articulate a letter I personally composed. I use it in letters, emails, more. It saves me a lot of time in the writing process. Churchletters.org sort of reminds of me of a composer writing a great song for a singer to sing. It's really cool because people love being appreciated and edified. Appreciation always wins over self promotion!"
