From the Pastor’s Desk

As I sit down to write this Christmas letter to all of you, joy overflows my heart. I am truly thankful every day that you took a chance to call this preacher all the way from the Sonoran Desert of Arizona here to God’s Country to be your Transitional Pastor. For the past six months, you have welcomed Kenny and me to your community and into this family of faith, and we have felt surrounded by your genuine hospitality. We are deeply thankful for each one of you!

As we begin to turn our eyes together toward Bethlehem to see again the miracle of the Word made flesh, my Christmas prayer is for your love of Christ and Christian hospitality to flood the streets of North Wilkesboro. I believe that God has placed you here in the heart of this town to bring Christ’s light into the lives of those who sit in darkness. For you are truly light-bearers of Christ! I have witnessed and experienced this.

I am so excited about all that God is doing in and through you right now and where God will lead you in the New Year!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas,

Susan
