|Greeting in the matchless Name of Jesus Christ,
I want to give thanks to God for your generosity. We collected over 1400 Operation Christmas Child boxes from our church family this year. It is a thrill to be your pastor as the Holy Spirit prompts us to connect with Christ, in our community of faith and to the culture in Centennial and around the world.
As God blesses us, we seek to be a blessing to all!
Many are familiar with the prophecies of Isaiah which were delivered over 700 years before Jesus was born in Bethlehem. In 7:14 and 9:6 Isaiah foretold the birth of a baby to a Virgin.
This Christmas at FCC, we are looking into some of the other astounding prophecies of Isaiah concerning Jesus. These are found in the servant songs. This will be a thrilling examination of the ministry of our Savior in the past, the present and the future.
We invite you to join us this Sunday morning, December 1, 2019 at 9:00 or 10:30. We are a multi-cultural congregation eager to share the love of Jesus with everyone! Please come prepared to be warmly welcomed with your friends and family. We have Sunday School classes for every age.
Let us also remind you of our upcoming "Live Nativity" on Saturday night, December 14 from 4:30-7:30. This is an event for everyone. There will be hot cocoa, cookies, live actors and many animals to re-tell the story of the good news of great joy!
It is our prayer that the Christmas season will be one filled with joy, peace, and love from our God who sent His Son to the earth not to condemn us but to save us.
This Sunday we will be celebrating the Lord's Supper so I encourage you to set aside some time to prepare your heart. May I suggest that you read Isaiah 40:28-31 and give God thanks for His strength given to you.
