Merry Christmas Pittman Park!

It is certainly the most wonderful time of the year!  Over the course of the past week I’ve been able to see Christmas lights, attend wonderful Christmas gatherings with our staff and groups in our church. There’s so much to do this season that you might miss out on simply enjoying time spent with family and friends remembering together the miracle of Christmas.

Speaking of Christmas, we are so excited for you to join us Friday night at 5pm and 7pm for Christmas Eve Worship with Candlelight and Communion! This is one of my favorite services of the year and I hope you and your family will be there as we hear again the Christmas story and remember how God came to dwell with us as a child born in a manger.

But Christmas Eve isn’t the end of our celebration! We will gather on Sunday, December 26 for a light Christmas breakfast in the Parlor at 9am and a combined worship service at 10am in the Sanctuary.   During this casual worship service we will be singing Christmas carols and concluding our sermon series “Listen!”.

As you complete your Christmas preparations, take some time to thank God for the blessings that you’ve received, and then take time to thank God for the troubles you’ve walked through as well—they are a reminder that God is with us in every season and circumstance, and our response to God who loves us and never leaves us is always praise and thanksgiving.

God bless and Merry Christmas,
Jonathan Smith
