2017‎ > ‎December 24 Bulletin‎ > ‎



Today we bring our offerings for Rehoboth Christian Ministries. Rehoboth conveys God’s love to persons with disabilities and their families by making room for them and enabling them to flourish.

On Christmas Day, December 25th we will take an offering for World Renew. Support World Renew as it responds to the enormous humanitarian needs of people around the world. Working with local church partners already on the ground to reach out to crisis-affected families, World Renew is there responding to natural disasters and conflict in many countries.

From World Renew: Thank you for standing in the gap with World Renew this Advent season. On Christmas we give gifts to each other, remembering Jesus Christ who stands in the gap for us and reminds us to share His gifts with others, especially those in need. If you’d like to know more about what World Renew is doing to make a difference in the lives of those who live in poverty, find ways to volunteer, or otherwise get involved, please visit worldrenew.net. Thank you

Next Sunday, December 31st we will take an offering for Fuente De Vida Church in Ensenada, Mexico. We as a church continue to support Pastors Jes’us & Evelia from the Fuente de Vida church in Ensenada, Mexico. We have sent many mission teams there to help build the church and homes in the colonia nearby. Please continue to support them in prayer as well.

Prayer Ministry: 

Due to the busy schedules of this season there will be no congregational prayer gathering. Yet, prayer is still as needed as ever. It is still our only life-line, the only way to come into the presence of the Lord. Please make time in your busy schedules to pray, to spend time with the One who said: "I live in a high and holy place, but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite." Isaiah 57:15 - God pleased to dwell with men.
