MESSAGE FROM THE PASTOR’S WIFE

Ladies of Hopewell:

 

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.

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 Performing Arts ministry has planned a Christmas production for our enjoyment on Friday, 12/14 at 7pm. As always, let’s come out and show our support.

As I reflect on this year, I want to thank those of you who participated in the women’s ministry events. Your attendance at the Women Enriching Women Fellowships, Ladies at the lake, Morning @ the Movies, as well as the Bold and Beautiful Retreat at Sea were noticed and appreciated. Also, we thank you for calling in to the Prayer Line on Saturday mornings.

I invite and encourage you to share in the fellowships that will take place in 2019. And as always, we welcome your suggestions and ideas for activities and events.

Thanking you in advance for your cooperation. May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all year through!
