A WORD FROM BROTHER JOE
Hey, Summit Family, This past Sunday I only saw about half of you at our morning worship service, and it was TOTALLY UNDERSTANDABLE!! Wow, I really don’t remember a “colder” day during all my years living in Kansas! With spitting snow, and sleet, the 50 MPH wind gusts during below freezing temperatures nearly knocked me down on my way to and from the car, to the church building! And, the cold winds felt like needles on my skin. They seemed to cut right through you, didn’t they? I don’t blame anyone for not getting out in that weather! I extend a “special” thanks to those of you who made the extra efforts it took to attend! Of course, we also had many folks out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday. I hope all of you were able to enjoy time with your loved ones.
This coming Sunday Pastor John will begin a new sermon series entitled “Does Anyone Know The Meaning Of Christmas?” Pastor John will unveil the WHO, WHOSE, WHOEVER, and the WHOM of the true meaning of Christmas. Don’t forget to pick up a number of the “invite cards” to hand out during this season. There are many individuals who are more open to attending church during the Christmas season than at any other time of the year. Don’t miss this chance to introduce them to their Savior!
We are also having a 5:00 PM “candlelight” Christmas Eve service where I will be sharing a message, along with our praise and worship team presenting some wonderful music. There will also be a kid’s drama of the Christmas Story. This will be a “1 hour service”, and I hope you’ll attend and invite others. There will be refreshments afterwards.
Every year, during December, we see decorations and celebrations that have NOTHING to do with the REAL MEANING of Christmas. He, Jesus, really is “The Reason For The Season”. He was born to die for our sins! I want to challenge all of you to join me in GIVING A SPECIAL GIFT, in His honor, during December! In each Sunday morning worship service during this month we will ask everyone to bring their tithes, offerings, and financial gifts to the Christmas Cradle and deposit them there. Some do “year end giving” to catch up. Whatever your motivation, I pray we’ll, together, make a great investment in Ministry through Summit Church as we come to the end of 2018.
I look forward to seeing you this Sunday at 10:00 AM for worship, and don’t forget the great Bible Study classes available for all ages at 9:00 AM. Be blessed, and never forget I love you. Bro. Joe
