We want to thank you for your generosity in your contributions last month. We asked you to consider your year-end giving plans in preparation for a December 17, 24 and 31 special contribution goal of $100,000 above our weekly budget. You gave $105,000 above budget. Congratulations and thank you for your continued financial generosity as these funds provide for the work of God.
Next, thank you to all the volunteers who participated in the Family Breakfast on Sunday morning December 17. The pancakes, bacon, sausage, eggs and hot coffee were fantastic but best of all was the wonderful Christian
fellowship as a result of your efforts.
We also want to thank our staff for the extra effort over the past several weeks. They have planned and executed our worship services with excellence. We look forward to hearing sermons from several members of our staff and from guest speakers as we start our new sermon series Beginnings.
Lastly, as we view 2017 in the rear view mirror and look forward to 2018, we know you are eager for news about our Preaching Minister search. We are diligently working and fervently praying that God directs us and brings the right man to us. You can expect more frequent updates in the coming weeks as we move forward with our search.
