Glory to God in the Highest, Christmas at FCC! Many thanks go to Mary Holland and her crew for our beautifully decorated tree and decorations around the building. Their service honors God, enhances our worship, and brings all of us to a place where we can celebrate the coming of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
There are several upcoming unique worship opportunities where you may worship the coming of the infant King. Next Sunday during both morning worship services the choir will involve the whole congregation in a worship experience with songs, bells, and readings telling the Christmas story in a unique and meaningful way. You are encouraged to invite your friends and neighbors to hear the Christmas story told through music and the word.
Plan now to attend, and bring your family and friends to our Christmas Eve services to be held at 4pm and 6pm. Both services will be identical. For many in our church, Christmas Eve is a family tradition that keeps the true meaning of Christmas in the holiday. If this is not your tradition, won’t you plan to join us this year and focus your heart and mind on the wonderful gift of Christ’s birth? Christmas Eve can also be a wonderful time of renewal for those who have drifted away from their relationship with God. Is there someone in your life whom God has laid on your heart to invite?
The 2020 MAP was approved during the congregational meeting yesterday by a vote of 216 to 10. As explained during the meeting, the finances of Clinton First Christian Church are strong. We have experienced a decline in giving since Greg’s departure, but we continue to be debt free and carry strong cash balances on our balance sheet. Even with the decline in giving we have a positive net revenue for this year. We are asking that you prayerfully consider an additional year-end gift to make up for our giving decline. Please look for a complete report of the church’s finances after the end of the year in the annual report.
