I am blessed beyond words to have the privilege of serving as Pastor of Providence Baptist Church. Providence is a special place especially during the Christmas season.
The excitement in the lives of our children, the music that truly inspires, the encouraging words that flow throughout our fellowship, the prayers that come from our fellowship bring blessings that words really can’t describe.
Margaret joins me in sharing the following Christmas greetings with each of you.
First of all, we express gratitude for the love and acceptance you share with us each day. It is difficult for us to believe that we are in our ninth year of service at Providence. We feel that the Providence family is more than a church family. We really feel that we are a part of your lives. Thank you for giving us the blessing of sharing our joys and our sorrows, our pleasures and our pain with you. Your presence in our lives has brought an assurance that as we minister God’s love we have the encouragement and support of a people on mission for Christ. It is in a spirit of love and appreciation that we share the following Christmas wish list.
We wish for the children of Providence:
The continued awareness of how special they are.
Opportunities to develop the special gifts God has given them.
A love for God that will grow each day.
An even greater appreciation for the wonderful gift of life.
We wish for the youth of Providence:
An openness to the call of God upon their lives.
