thoughts this Christmas:
He, (Christ), was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in
these last times for your sake. 1Pe 1:20
The centre piece of our Christmas celebrations was planned before the
creation of the world.

that are not - to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before

We’re glad that you could join with

God, who is sovereign over all, orchestrated the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem,
To our guests…

birth of our Saviour, the
Pastors and Office Staff
want to thank you for your
love, encouragement and
support through this past
year and trust and pray
that you have a safe,

from the dead.
after His death on the cross, the Father’s mighty hand was there to raise Him
And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, He
who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through
His Spirit, who lives in you. Ro 8:11
God is right there with you, to orchestrate your life that you might shine and
give Him glory. Allow Him to hold the baton.
God bless
