A Note From Jason
I'm still reflecting on how special Sunday was for our church. If you had a child that sang in our choir, please brag on them for me. They were awesome! I also loved being with many of them (and you) at our Family Christmas Event on Sunday afternoon. I am also so thankful for your participation in our response time on Sunday morning. I have been greatly blessed to read through the many statements of gratitude that you wrote down. Finally, we had a really strong offering that, along with year-end gifts, will allow us to finish 2016 in a very healthy financial position. We'll share more about that soon. Thanks for your faithfulness in giving!
I can't wait to celebrate Jesus with you over the next several days. Don't forget about our revised schedule for the next 2 Sundays. You can see details for that below. I hope to see you on Christmas Eve. Merry Christmas!
News & Announcements
Join us on Christmas Eve at 3:00 & 4:30 PM as we culminate our Advent season. This special service will feature carols, candles, and a brief message. The service will last about an hour long, and childcare is not provided. A cry room will be available for any restless children. If you would like to help greet for either service, please email Merna Schott.
Pray For Our Nicaragua Team!
Next week, we will be sending out a team to serve in Nicaragua. Special thanks to our team leader, Suzanne Eaton, for her leadership. Please be praying for this group as they minister in a new community and begin work with a new church and their leaders. We are grateful to serve alongside Garland Alford and Partners in Christ.
Christmas & New Year's Day Gatherings
This Christmas, we invite you to join us online at shorelineknox.com/live for a brief Christmas service together. We'll be streaming at 9:15 & 10:45 AM. We will not be meeting in person on Christmas. On New Year's Day, we'll gather for one service together at 10:45 AM. We'll resume our normal schedule on Sunday, January 8.
Our next Shoreline 101 class (formerly Launch Point) will be on Sunday, January 15 and 22 during the 10:45 AM worship gathering. This two-week class will walk you through our Shoreline vision, as well as present you with all the ways to get involved in the life of the church. During the second week, you'll have the opportunity to join Shoreline in partnership. Register here.
On January 15, we'll be celebrating new life in Christ through believer's baptism. If you are ready to be baptized, or would just like to learn more about what we believe about baptism, let us know here and someone will be in touch soon!
