For to us a child is born, us a son is given, and the government be on his shoulders.

 And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, God of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6).

Dear Members and Friends,

I would like to express gratitude to all of us for our participation in filling God’s pantry during the Thanksgiving Season. Again, we give God the glory for everything we were able to achieve because he is the provider.

Now, Advent is here, the season of expectation and waiting, a season of preparation for Christmas. This year we are going to do a study on the story of Jesus in a very uplifting and memorable way. The book and a video “Under Wraps: The Gift We Never Expected” is an inspiring read and watch. We are all invited to come for Sunday School this month.

Again, Christmas is around the corner we welcome all our friends and neighbors to join us for our Sunday services @ 10 am we are having an Advent and Christmas series called “The Paradigm Shift” beginning 12/2/18. Also join us for our Christmas Eve service on Monday 12/24/18 @ 5 pm.

I urge us to approach Advent and Christmas with expectant hearts, developing a personal Advent and Christmas devotional time. A moment to reflect on God on a personal level, to seek to know him better and develop a more Spirit filled relationship with God during this season.  A few suggestions to reflect on (Rom 8:18-25; 1 Peter 1:13; Rev 22:20; Psalm 62:5-7; Psalm 130:5-6; Psalm 130:7-8).

Let me challenge all of us this season of expecting and waiting, try to be observant of your surroundings around the home, church or shops and keep a record of those things you have never payed attention to or noticed for a long time. Then see how there are many surprises that surround us every day.

 I wish all of you a Happy, Hopeful, Peaceful, Joyful and Love[ful] Advent and Christmas and New Year Season.

                                    Rev I.M. Kabete
