Christmas is about sharing the gift of God’s Son, Jesus Christ, with the world.  You can share Christ with needy children around the world by taking part in Operation Christmas Child, a missions project of Samaritan’s Purse.  Help spread joy and peace to hurting children by filling shoe boxes, which are located in the foyer.

Prayer Corner

This week meditate on . . .  Leviticus 7:28-30

The Lord said to Moses, “Say to the  Israelites:  ‘Anyone who brings a fellowship offering to the Lord is to bring part of it as their sacrifice to the Lord. With their own hands they are to present the food offering to the Lord; they are to bring the fat, together with the breast, and wave the breast before the Lord as a wave offering.’”  (NIV)

God told the people of Israel to bring their peace offerings personally with their own hands.  They were to take time and effort to express thanks to God and we are no different.  As we approach the Thanksgiving season, may we take time to express our thanks both to God and to others who have blessed us.
