As we move into a new year, we can be thankful that God has taken us through this past year of the deep waters of uncertainty. He has seen us through trials and losses. He has made us aware of just how much we need to depend on His grace, mercy, provision and power.
It is with confidence that we can approach Him and ask for His help during this coming year. We know that He can fill us with the joy and peace of His Spirit. We can trust that He will direct and guard our minds and hearts. We can know that our faith in Him will serve as a shield against whatever may come our way and that our salvation is a helmet of protection against whatever attacks He may allow our enemy to make against us.
We can ask Him and know that He will answer our pleas to surround us with His presence and to understand that He is always faithful to His promises and that His Word is always true.
Therefore, we can say that we believe 2022 will be a good year and that our lives can be filled with hope and optimism. May the light of that hope we enjoy as Christians be that which draws our fearful world, not to us, but to the source of that light, our Savior Jesus Christ. May they understand the message of the Christmas gospel that we just celebrated, that “the true light that gives light
to every man, has come into the world. To all who receive Him, to those who believe in His name, He gives the right to become children of God.”
(John 3:9, 12)
Let us make 2022 a year of proclaiming that message, celebrating Christ's victory and of bearing the fruit of His Spirit.
With love, Pastor Scott

HAPPY NEW YEAR! It's a whole new year! Our AWANA Club took a holiday break and will be restarting January 5th at 6:05 pm, we look forward to hearing about all the clubbers exciting adventures over their break.
December 2021 went quickly as:
The December 1st clubbers were challenged to wear hats, gloves, and scarfs for our theme night, frozen night. Challenging clubbers to donate winter gear to our mitten tree basket to assist needy children in our community who need winter gear so as not to be frozen walking to school or at the bus stop in the cold winter weather. Good job to all who donated gear.
On the 1st we opened the first Awana store of the year. Clubbers got their first experience with the treasures the store shelves held!
The 15th we continued the season of giving as the coat room was quickly closed, renovated, and reopened as the “Christmas Shop” where clubbers shopped for gifts for parents/caregivers. The shop was complete with personal gift-wrapping elves who happily wrapped and readied secret selections to be neatly placed under the Christmas tree to be open Christmas morning.
Thank you secret, gift-wrapping Elves. We broke from club December. 22, & December. 29, so that all could celebrate the birth of our savior with family
Club starts back Jan. 5th as we get club off to a Great start in 2022!
We are so excited to see what God has in store for our clubs in the New Year!
Thank you to all who volunteer each week and assist clubbers with learning God’s word, so they can begin hiding it in their hearts! Thank-you for your continued love, support and most importantly prayers! Pray for our children to be reached with the gospel of Christ and that they learn to serve God, and for our entire leadership staff.
Cool with Christ,

Our children’s Christmas program was such a blessing this year, as we were able to learn about the symbols of Christmas. Each of the children who participated should be proud of their hard work in learning their parts and how well they read them!
Thank you to all of the teachers, media team, and hospitality team members, and all who participated,
it was fun and a good learning experience.
