Christmas!

Dan HarrisonI love the Christmas Season! All of the excitement in the air, the decorations and of course the parties make this one of my favorite times of the year. To keep all of these in proper perspective we must remember that the reason for all of this is the celebration of the birth of Jesus. In the midst of all of the activities, we must not ever forget to keep Christ the central point in all we do. This Sunday is a great time to kick off the season as our choirs, orchestra and drama teams will present “The Light Has Come.” This Christmas musical presentation of the Gospel will surely get you into the Christmas spirit. They will present this musical presentation on Sunday, December 2, at 3:00 PM and 6:00 PM. Invite your friends to come and experience the Christ of Christmas.

Sunday, December 16 at 3:30 PM we will be conducting our Good Neighbor Survey. We need 100 people to participate as we reach out to our neighbors within a half mile of our church. We will be going in teams of two and reaching out to every home. I hope that you will plan on being a part of this survey team as we reach out to our neighbors.

Christmas is a time for giving. There are opportunities to help others during the Christmas season. If you or your class would like a family to help at Christmas, please call me and let me know. We have several families that we are working with at this time. This is also the time when we support our International Missions through our Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. Our church goal is $32,500.00. I hope that you will make this one of your Christmas gifts during this season.

Thank you for your support of Eastern Hills Baptist Church through your tithes and offerings. Your giving to the church allows us to carry out all of the ministries of our church, keep up our facilities and reach around the world through Missions. Thank you for giving through Eastern Hills Baptist Church.
