But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.

Psalm 1:2-3

December 2011

You are cordially invited to a "Birthday Party For Jesus!"

Date: December 25th 9:30am
Place: Killbuck United Methodist Church
No Presents- Just YOUR Presence!

This will be our "Casual Sunday" where we come just as we are; sweats, pajamas, jeans or other casual wear. Please bring a breakfast item to share as we will start with breakfast, then go into the sanctuary for carols, a story or two, a few fun surprises and then we will conclude our party with birthday cake and ice cream and a piñata for the children.

I also want to remind you of our annual Christmas Eve Cantata service at 7:00pm. The title of this year’s cantata is: "Light of the World."

Please take some time in the coming weeks of Advent to prepare yourself for the coming of our Lord. Take time to read the stories in the Bible that tell of the coming of the Christ child. Meditate on what it must have been like for Mary and Joseph to know they were going to be the parents of the Messiah. Imagine the difficulties of the journey to Bethlehem, being nine months pregnant and then to find no room, no doctor, or midwife to help you give birth to your first child, no mother to hold your hand, no crib to place your baby in and no idea what is ahead of you. Just faith and trust in God: "Emmanuel" (God is with us) it was true then and it is still true today- no matter what, no matter where-God is always with us. May you find comfort, joy and peace this Blessed Advent and Christmas Season!

You are loved!
Pastor Roberta & Tom
