Dear Friends of Faith,
When Grinches find God,
When Scrooges are filled with another Spirit, and
When Clauses meet Christ,
Christ-mess is transformed into Christmas!

FROM GRINCH TO GRINS:
There’s no shortage of grouchy grousy grumbly grinches. With so much rancor between competing groups, in a time when our security is uncertain and economic hardship weighs heavy on so many, we all could use some joy! And if that joy could be “exceeding great joy!” how delicious would that be? CLICK HERE TO READ MORE: http://reachingforth.blogspot.com/2015/12/from-grinch-to-grin.html
THE FIX IS IN:
Isn’t it funny how people who say they don’t believe that God exists, are quick to blame Him for every evil they see. One newspaper headlined, “GOD ISN’T FIXING THIS.”
The only reason God hasn’t fixed this murderous, hateful, selfish, prideful, wicked generation is this: They have refused THE FIX! This fix is not and cannot be imposed by governments, induced by pharmacists, or inspired by human philosophies--it is only imparted by GOD through faith in His Word (incarnate & written) and the indwelling of His Holy Spirit.

A VIDEO POST: THE CHRISTMAS TRUCE
HELP US PRAY THAT OUR YEAR END NEED WILL BE MET:
As we come to the last few weeks and days of 2015 we are faced with several significant financial needs. In addition to our monthly need of $9,000 we need to raise $1,000 for a required elevator inspection, $750 to repair and secure a safety certificate on our bus, and $4,250 to clear past accounts and to purchase a much needed church van. We need a total of $15,000 this month. We are so thankful that God’s people sacrificially gave $2000 on the first weekend of the month. Now we praying that the Lord will lay it upon the hearts of His people to give the final $13,000 in the next 20 days, before midnight December 31.
