December 2022 Newsletter
Philippians 1:3-6 3 I thank my God every time I remember you. 4 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy 5 because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
We do thank God for each of you. Thank you for making the month of November memorable in so many ways. Thank you to the ladies group for your wonderful service project to send gifts to Riley's platoon, and we are thankful for your time of fellowship as well. From AWANA to Kids Club, the message has not changed; "Jesus Saves". This month we were blessed to witness three of our youth give their lives to God and follow Jesus' example of being baptized. What a God Sighting!!
