A Note for Children and Families

Dear friends and families, 

    The Westminster Confession of Faith was originally written in the 17th century to communicate church doctrine. Even today, we celebrate and refer to these statements of belief. In chapter 8 of the WCF, we read about Jesus as the second person of the Trinity. Chapter 8 describes Jesus in this way, "In the fullness of time (Jesus) took on himself the nature of man, with all the essential qualities and ordinary frailties of man - except that he was sinless."

We have reason to celebrate because Jesus remained sinless for us. As you already know, everyone who believes in Jesus is Justified before God the Father. Paul says in 2 Cor 5:21, "For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God."

This last Sunday, our kids learned that Jesus remained sinless for us. That fact gives our kids and all of us reason to celebrate and to worship Him.

With Blessings and Prayers,

Dean Hollenbeck
Children & Family Ministry Director

Memories:

Christmas Eve (Past) at the Ring's


 The Ring’s hosted a wonderful Christmas Eve devotional at their house. It was a great time of lessons, carols, and fellowship.   See picture below.

"Reaching Out" 

Operation Food Search was a success!


   A good number of us met Tuesday evening, December 4th, and spent the evening helping Operation Food Search.   Time: 5:15pm

We spent a few hours helping in two ways.

First: we sorted hundreds and hundreds of various types of bread.  That way local food closets can come in to the food bank and find exactly what they need to serve their clientielle. 

At the same time, a number of ladies made dozens of table decorations.  The Food Bank is hosting a dinner and needed help getting the tables looking good for the occassion.  

It was a great night helping out and watching each other in action - another fun way to connect with each other as we served Christ in the process.
