Dear church family,
As this very trying year draws to a close, it is the time to look forward to a brighter tomorrow, one day at a time, starting January 1. How do we get there? I have 2 Challenges for each of us. No, it’s not frivolous like the Ice Bucket or Polar Plunge Challenges but a Challenge that can bring us closer to God and each other thru His Word.
It’s the “Read Through the New Testament in 90 days Challenge”! WILL YOU ACCEPT IT? That’s only 2 to 4 chapters a day. Challenge your family, friends and neighbors. We can all do this together.
Also Challenge #2 is for each of us to find a reason to be grateful and thankful to God for something each day.
Thank You for all your e-mails, cards, phone calls, etc. and especially your prayers. God has truly blessed us so much this year and we are grateful and thankful for you as well. We miss you and keep you in our prayers. Remember we are the Family of God and He is so Good! Hugs to all. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Stay safe, sane and healthy!
Prayers and Hugs,
Jean and Larry Grow
