Ladies of Hopewell,
I’ve said this before, but it’s worth repeating, we’ve said for a long time that “Jesus Is the Reason for the Season,” however, during this season other holidays are celebrated such as Hanukkah and Kwanzaa, therefore, I’ve penned a new phrase that says “Christ is the Cause for Christmas.” As we know, without His Immaculate Conception and humble birth, there would be no reason to celebrate Christmas. So, let’s accept the challenge of making sure that our children and loved ones know and understand the story of Christmas. And as you exchange gifts, please emphasize that the greatest gift given to mankind is JESUS CHRIST.
If you enjoy making arts and crafts, or would like to experience it for the first time, the Women’s Ministry invites you to join us for “Crafter-noon.” Come out on Saturday morning, 12/9 at 10:00 for a few hours of fun and fellowship. A list of supplies that you will need is available on the information display in the foyer. For more information, please see Sister Shernell Dozier.
Don’t forget that the Mission Hope Project is an ongoing outreach effort to assist those who are less fortunate and in need of basic necessities. Therefore, we need your continual support. This is a great time of the year to give to a worthy cause.
The Performance Arts Ministry has planned a Christmas production for our enjoyment on Friday, 12/8 at 7pm and the Prison Ministry’s “Angel Tree” event will take place on Saturday morning, 12/16 at Noon. As always, let’s come out and show our support.
Since we serve and worship the Prince of Peace, May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through!
HIS love and Mine,
Women’s Ministry Director
