Scripture for the day: “How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation,who say to Zion, ‘Your God reigns.'” Isaiah 52:7
Grace Received: I can’t believe we only have 2 more Sundays before Christmas! The next two weeks we’ll continue our “Help” Series.This Sunday will be “Help Coming” from John 1. Don’t forget the Christmas Eve Candlelight Service which will be at 6:00.
Grace Shared: While we often think of the Drive Thru Nativity as a grace-extending event, there is a lot of grace-sharing that happens as we serve together. This is a quote from Jill Murrell after her first experience serving with the Drive Thru Nativity: “I wish the people driving through could have a small peek at the work going on inside too. People serving the volunteers were amazing. The food brought in was just unreal. The fellowship at the tables during our breaks was unforgettable. I can’t even imagine how hard the clean up crews worked to get all our muddy tracks off the floor. No stone left unturned, every minute detail worked out with grace. Blessed to be a part of this, God’s good works prepared for us… Not to mention the sweetest ever child care providers!”
A huge THANK YOU to all who served – it was a great weekend! Special thanks to Derek & Deborah Cooke for their leadership.
Congratulations to Carissa Taylor who was awarded Teacher of the Year for the 2nd year in a row at Clarksville Christian School.
Grace Extended: Last weekend nearly 2,900 people spent time on our campus hearing and seeing our story, the story of Jesus.I was at a meeting this week at the Chamber of Commerce and some people on the committee said, “I got a card from your church yesterday. It was hand-written!” They were very impressed with the follow-up from the event. While many were outside or working in the kitchen, we had a crew inside writing notes, sending e-mails, and praying for those who were on our campus. One person commented on Facebook, “They weren’t even taking donations!” The basin and towel way of life is always attractive. Thanks for showing our community a good picture of Jesus!
