Oh, there will be lots of pictures coming soon!
The Christmas lunch was as always an abundance of delicious food and warm fellowship. Thank you to those who handled the serving of the lunch, your service is so appreciated.
Blogging will be slow this week, but there are a few requests we would like to share:
Bessie P's grandson Brian was involved in a 4 wheeler accident. He suffered severe injuries to his wrist. Surgery was performed on the wrist and he is at home recovering.
Morris and Ann D.'s baby granddaughter we have been praying for received some good news. The baby has a cyst and it was originally thought the cyst was connected to her brain. A recent scan revealed that it is not connected to her brain. She still must undergo surgery in the next few weeks, so please pray for the surgery to go well.
Also, Morris and Ann's son and wife will be having a baby today (Monday). Please pray for a smooth delivery and a healthy baby!

We are so excited about Sunday morning as our children will be presenting their Christmas program! They have been working for months on this presentation. Following the play, we will enjoy a church-wide Christmas lunch together. The church will be providing the meat, you are asked to bring a food dish - salad, vegetable or dessert to share.
Sunday evening we will enjoy a special Christmas service. There will not be a mid week service during Christmas week, so this will be a time to celebrate and worship the Lord together. We will enjoy a time of singing and hear a Christmas devotion.

Who was Lottie Moon?
Lottie Moon - the namesake of the international missions offering - has become something of a legend to us. But in her time Lottie was anything but an untouchable hero. In fact, she was like today's missionaries. She was a hard-working, deep-loving Southern Baptist who labored tirelessly so her people group could know Jesus.
Why was the offering named for this early China missionary? Throughout her career, Lottie Moon wrote numerous letters home, urging Southern Baptists to greater missions involvement and support. One of those letters triggered Southern Baptists' first Christmas offering for international missions - enough to send three new missionaries to China.

Carol A. will be coming home this week. We are rejoicing with her and her family.
There were a few adults and children out yesterday with sickness, please keep them in prayer.
Please remember these and others in your prayers and let God direct you to minister and bless those around us.
