Rediscovering Christ during Christmas

Dear First United Methodist Church,

This past Sunday, a ministry team and I went to Osprey Lodge to offer Chapel Time to the residents. One of those residents was named Margaret.

She shared a testimony about losing a creche (nativity scene) near and dear to her because many of her belongings were sold in an estate sale by her daughter.

However, just the day before coming to Chapel Time, a neighbor brought it to her as a surprise.

She was overcome with joy in sharing her testimony during the service.

This is my prayer for us. Like Margaret, may we rediscover the joy of the Holy Family this Christmas.

May angels bring us glad tidings of “comfort and joy”.

Speaking of God’s messengers, I hope you will make time to attend in-person our Christmas concert this Sunday, Dec. 10th at 3 pm, “Go Light your World!” in the Sanctuary. Invite a friend or neighbor. You never know. Your invitation may be the gift that helps your neighbor rediscover the Christ Child.

Grace and Peace,

Pastor David
