This past week we've witnessed another atrocity... It so saddens me to see evil people take the lives of others.  It also inspires me to be amongst the people of God, because in us Jesus reigns and the bible says in John 1:5 " The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome[a] it.""

We are those who belong to Jesus .  I take comfort in that because in it there is the hope that is the wonder of Christmas.  I will begin a sermon series tomorrow speaking about "The Wonder of Christmas".  This month we will be teaching on four different wonders of Christmas.  I hope you can make it, it's going to be great!

I hope to see you there.  We are in a season of growth at the Orchard.  We have many new visitors showing up and that is why I need you at church.  Planting a church is not the work of one Pastor, or two or even three.  Planting a church is the work of a church.  

I need you to keep helping me plant this church.  You may have a gift or service, or you may like to help with the children's program.  You may not have much time right now but you can attend church regularly.  Whatever you can give, I'm asking you to join me in planting this church and partnering with me to advance the gospel where the light shines and darkness does not prevail.

God bless you!
