Scripture for the day: “For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.” I Peter 1:18-19 
Grace Received: I had a very enjoyable conversation tonight (Wed) over some of Cindy Coday’s tasty cooking. Michelle and I sat with Richard and Samantha and we were blessed to hear about the ways God is at work in them. Richard is now about 120 days sober and is walking one day at time in victory over his addiction. Both of them are attending Celebrate Recovery and are experiencing the healing that Jesus brings and the support, encouragement, and accountability that comes from this wonderful ministry. Samantha was blessed with a raise at work and Richard was called back after having been laid off. They have endured a very difficult journey and by the grace of God are moving ahead to a much brighter future. Saving grace. Delivering grace. Healing grace. Keeping grace. They are experiencing it daily. Thank you God!

There are no speaking parts but there is plenty to do and this is a perfect time for EVERYONE to be involved in this outreach event. Childcare is provided. Food is provided. Costumes are provided. Directions are provided.  All you have to do is show up with a willingness to serve. Come be a part!! If you have any questions contact Deborah Cooke at
THANK YOU to all who have signed to help with our next few months of Room in the Inn! All the dates are covered. Many hands make light work and your willingness to serve is a blessing to the less fortunate in our community. I believe God is pleased with these efforts to extend grace in some very tangible ways.
If the weather necessitates a cancellation of Christmas on the Cumberland this weekend, that announcement will be made via Facebook and our website:
