Early this morning in Dearborn, Michigan my thoughts are about the last minute things I had to do before Christmas Eve. Cards? Calls? Gifts?
What’s the most important things you can do at Christmas? Among them is attending or watching our Christmas Eve Services to celebrate the birth of our Savior, as we thank Him for his saving love to become human and make his home among us. “He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness.” (John 1:14)
One of the most important things that Becky and I do is to give to Christ at Christmas. He gave his life for our salvation and has blessed us abundantly beyond anything we deserve. All the things that were impossible He has made possible! My parents taught my sisters and me to give to Christ at Christmas. What a great idea. God gave us His Son, let’s gift to Jesus when we celebrate his birth.
I invite you to join us and give to Christ this Christmas. Our Christmas Eve offering is an important part of our worship at Woodland. The offering that Woodland gives Christmas Eve has enabled us to help orphanages, hospitals, feeding ministries, missionaries, and resource and improve Woodland’s ministries.
Each year prayerfully this offering is used to serve Christ by serving others.
If you’re single or married, or married with children please take time to prayerfully consider together what your most generous gift to Christ this Christmas will be. Seriously, gather your children around you and pray with them. Enable each of them to be able to give to Christ. You will establish a faithful habit of stewardship that will bless them for the rest of their lives.
You can give during the Christmas Eve Service, Sunday, online at http://www.Woodland.Church/give, or using your cell phone by texting 77977 and using the keyword woodlandchurch (the spelling is correct, no space between woodland and church). If you text you will be asked for your method of giving. After entering that information you can give. I’m able to give in less than 10 seconds now that set up my account.
Thank you for your generosity and faithfulness to the ministries of Woodland Church.
