News for December 2019

We trust you had an enjoyable Thanksgiving with family and friends.  Now it is time to gear up for all the Christmas festivities.  What a wonderful thought that God was not too busy to provide a way of salvation for all who trust in Him!

 

Our Christmas luncheon will be Tuesday, December 10, at Haney's Restaurant in Peachtree.  Plan to meet there by 11:30 a.m. Please sign up on the sign-up sheet in the hallway, so we know how many to plan for.

 

 Everyone seemed to enjoy the cookie exchange, so we will do that again this year.  Please bring a batch of your favorite cookies, so we can have them for dessert and take a few home with us.  It was agreed to have an ornament exchange ~ only one per person or couple.  It can be purchased or hand made.  We will draw numbers to see who gets to choose when, and have no "stealing."  You may put your name on your gift tag as to who it's FROM, if you like.

 

At this time of year, it's easy to forget those who struggle with sadness.  Pray for the homeless and others that we feed Monday nights.  Pray for caregivers, as well as the ones going through physical and other needs, including Virginia Adams, June Brooks, Neil and Modean McKeehan, Virginia Cox, Marilyn Tyler, Harlace Sealy, Donald and Joyce Hogan, Kent and Marna Chapman, Ray Hyde, and Judy Brooks.  Pray for the health of Christian family relationships around the world; there are others out there "praying" for the destruction of the family unit as we know it. Pray for Pastor Calvin and his family, deacons and their families, Evan and Cassie Nixon and others working with the youth, choir director and musicians, teachers and leaders in the various Sunday ministry and Wednesday evening classes, and each one who has a unique part in making Andrews First Baptist Church a lighthouse or Jesus.  Remember our college students, high school and middle school students, and those in elementary school; as well as teachers and staff in our schools, that they may let their lights shine for Jesus.

 

May you and your loved ones enjoy a very special Blessed Christmas and Holyday Season!
