We have had a lot going on this past week. We have been working on an outreach program for Christmas and I truly believe it has been a success. I know it has been a real blessing for all of us. Thursday we wrapped gifts for the families we adopted and sacked cookies for the nursing home. Saturday we gave a shower for a mother-to-be and then went to the nursing home to sing carols and hand out cookies that we made. Today we had our Christmas dinner following the morning service. It has been a wonderful and blessed week of fellowship.
Our morning service opened with Bro. Dale greeting all with a good morning. Sister Carla read scripture from Ephesians 2:4-9. We sang for Jesus. We had many prayer requests. Prayer led by Sister Patsy.
