Welcome...this is your community.
Greetings from Our President
Fantastic!! The wonderful season of family and festivities is upon us. It is a marvelous time of the year. The time is especially meaningful to a disciple of Jesus because it is all about love and grace. These two words are cornerstones of the faith.
Thanksgiving and Christmas are all about family, friends, and expressions of love. Jesus assured us that God loves us far more than we can ever really comprehend. He is pouring his spirit of love into us as much and as fast as we are willing to receive it. He has commanded us to share the same with everyone around us, but we see that in action at this time of year especially. It is a wonderful season.
The season is also a season of grace. It is a season for giving gifts of joy to other people. We will go to great lengths to give others gifts that cause their hearts to feel happiness. We so desperately want those whom we love to know joy, peace, and goodness. This season encourages us to do more than ever to help that wonderful experience to take place in their lives.
I cannot imagine a year without Thanksgiving and Christmas. It would be so long and dreary. God has provided them for our hearts and spirits. The season calls out the very best in each of us. He wants our hearts to be full and overflowing. An overflow that our world needs.
God bless you and your families during these days. May his overflow be your overflow.
